Pakistan's Haris Sohail twists ankle, injury not serious

ESPNcricinfo staff

Batsman Haris Sohail has twisted his left ankle at Pakistan's ongoing training camp in Lahore, ahead of the India tour, but is not expected to be out of action for too long. Sohail, who is yet to make his international debut, is part of Pakistan's squad for the one-day leg of the tour.

Sohail was taken for an MRI scan that revealed the injury was not serious. He was advised six days rest, which would mean he should be ready to play in time for the India ODI series, which begins on December 30 in Chennai.

In June, Sohail had been picked in Pakistan's squad for the T20s against Sri Lanka, but didn't make the playing XI. He had been in fine form on the domestic circuit, scoring three hundreds and a half-century in his last four first-class appearances for Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited. He had also scored a rapid, unbeaten fifty in Sialkot Stallions victory over Abbottabad Falcons in the just-concluded Faysal Bank T-20 Cup.

    i dont want o see akmal brothers, along with shoaib malik and afridi in the t20's. They all have gotten enough chances. Please make room for harris as he has a lot of talent. We pick theses skilled players but dont use them because of politics. if pcb wants to kill politics from team , they need to try new blood

    @Major Hammad ! I agreed about Fawad Alam but Sarfraz Ahmad got many chances but he didn't prove himself in international contests. PaklionYousaf@ As your id says you are a big fan of Muhammad Yousaf but he is get old now we all know he is good player. No doubt..

    Slaam to everyone and I would like to ask you guys few things and would love to see what you guys think? 1=First of all are we sporting Pak or Punjab, Sindh ect? 2=how come misbha, younis and faraat are in the team? NOW I would like to share my views on ODI and T20 squad happy to listen to your comments thanks. ODI and T20 squad with batting order for T20 batting order can be flexible. 1 Jamshed 2 A shahzad 3 Hafeez (C) 4 U Akmal 5 Asad Shafeq or malik 6 Haris shoail or Hamad Azam 7 K Akamal (WK)or NO other choice or his brother U akmal if he doesn't do any back injury drama for his brother place.don't forget AB form SA has became WC.If he becomes WC we can play 5 quality bowlers.He's better then K akmal behind wickets. 8 S afridi or Raza Hasan 9 U Gul 10 J Khan 11 S ajmal 12 Imran Faraat water supply man coz he has got life contract with PCB(Pagal Cricket Board)

    I hope he gets fit and gets a good chance in Series.. He is a very good find for pakistan. Guy has good talent and temperament for playing long innnings. Would be an ideal middle order batsman.. and whats this nonsense about karachi lahore or peshwar.. its a national team and anyone having talent from any part of pakistan should be playing.. Please grow up and stop these things now. you guys are not immigrants anymore..

    its not a Pakistan team. its a Punjab 11. Its captain by a grand father name Misbah. shame on you PCB.

    Wondering where MOHAMMAD YOUSUF is spending his life after subsequently beeing pushed aside by PCB? Legendary?! Mohammad Hafeez, test batsman Younis Khan, anti batsman Misbah-ul-Haq, catch and run rates dropping Kamran and not so clean Umar Akmal, recently bettered Farhat and young opener Nasir Jamshed all together put a TOTAL of 18 ODI hundrets in their WHOLE lives for Pakistan. The wise shoulders of MOHAMMAD YOUSUF alone carry the burden of 15 centuries in ODIs, recognized thrice with a player-of-the-series award along with 18 player-oft-the match awards during his NINE*720 runs heavy career, proving his worth as a CLASS player and STROKEMAKER throughout the cricketing world. A record 1788 test runs in 2006 proved his dedication, whose size Michael Clarke must have felt during his run heavy year of 2012, still falling short a distant 299 runs. *With "nine" im not talking about 9 hundred and some runs, but about NINE THOUSAND. (Uness. 2 mention, Way more than the current line up)

    @Abdullah Mumtaz, Fahad Khan, kam_uk : I'm not from Karachi but on merit Fawad Alam FC avg 55+, Sarfraz Ahmed FC avg 42+ (wk) both deserve consistent chances in Test matches, Selectors should give these players chances in Tests, not in ODI or T20 as they performed excellent in First Class (4 day matches) so chances also should be in Test matches. Fawad Alam also scored 168 on Debut in Sri but after 2 more tests he dropped continuously, that's unfair with a player whose domestic FC record is Best in Pakistan.

    What the heck?!?!

    Why couldn't it be Farhat, Misbah, Younis, Azhar, Hafeez, Irfan, Riaz, Tanvir, Amin, Malik or even Anwar Ali!!

    This is the first time in a long time, someone has actually merited a place in the squad through strong performances in FC cricket.
