Pakistan seamer Mohammad Talha has been ruled out of the Test series against England in the UAE due to injury. "Talha developed back problem and in the MRI scan it was revealed that he has a disc problem and when his pain subsides in the next two three days he will return home," Pakistan team manager Naveed Cheema told AFP.
Cheema said Talha needed 10 to 12 days rest. Talha didn't play for Pakistan in their 10-wicket win in Dubai, but he did pick up four wickets in the warm-up game for the PCB XI prior to the Test series. Cheema said Pakistan would not be calling in a replacement.
The second Test begins in Abu Dhabi on January 25.
