The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) gave an update on pacer Ihsanullah’s injury on Monday, saying the youngster is “on the road to recovery”.
The 21-year-old did not compete due to an elbow injury and after surgery.
“Ihsanullah is on the road to recovery after spending 11 weeks in post-operative care following an elbow injury,” the PCB said in an official statement about the pacer.
He said that a doctor from England operated on Ihsanullah in the first week of September.
After the operation, the paceman wore an elbow brace for four weeks, with a doctor and medical practitioner monitoring him on a daily basis at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore, the PCB added.
“Ihsanullah’s elbow was removed in the fifth week after which he began his active rehabilitation. His MRI and CT scan in the second week of October showed signs of recovery, according to doctors who described them as satisfactory post-surgery appearances.”
Doctors expressed confidence that Ihsanullah will be able to start functional training after completing his 16th week of recovery.
Ihsanullah was banned from international cricket after playing in the national team for the home ODI series against New Zealand in April.
The pacer is unlikely to feature in the Test series against Australia towards the end of 2023 and the Pakistan Super League (PSL) next year.
The 21-year-old has played one ODI and four T20Is during his short career for the Pakistan cricket team, so far. He made his debut in the limited overs format earlier this year.
