Pakistan leggie Abrar Ahmed could reportedly be punished by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for displaying negligence towards his injury that prevented him from playing the recently-concluded three-Test series against Australia. According to Geo News, the youngster ignored the medical panel's instructions due to which his period of injury has extended.

The 25-year-old suffered an injury during the practice match against Prime Minister XI in Australia, ruling him out of the entire series. As per Geo News, the wrist-spinner had been diagnosed with Sciatica - a condition that comes with pain, numbness, and tingling in leg. He had complained of pain during the 2023 World Cup and was tested immediately.

The medical staff had prepared a detailed plan for Abrar's recovery, which included numerous exercises and drills. Apart from the medical staff, team management also advised him to perform exercises, but there was allegedly no positive response.

Abrar Ahmed claimed a seven-wicket haul on his Test debut:

It's worth remembering that the Karachi-born cricketer enjoyed a stellar Test debut in Multan, running through England's batting line-up to finish with 7 wickets. The wrist-spinner's maiden Test victim was Zak Crawley and had dismissed all six wickets to fall at one stage, including Ben Stokes and Joe Root. In 6 Tests so far, Abrar has taken 38 scalps at 31.07.

As a potent wrist-spinner, Abrar's presence would have made some difference on the Australian tracks, but it wasn't to be as the hosts blanked Pakistan 3-0.
