Left-arm seamer Rumman Raees has been named in the Pakistan squad as a replacement for injured fast bowler Wahab Riaz for the rest of the ongoing Champions Trophy one-day worldwide tournament.

"Wahab will not be able to continue to play in the remaining games of the Champions Trophy".

Wahab, who conceded 87 runs in 8.4 wicketless overs in the most expensive spell of five-plus overs in tournament history, hobbled off after twisting an ankle during Sunday's match.

"It is a great opportunity for me to make my mark in the team", Raees told The Express Tribune.

Goldman under fire for buying Venezuela "hunger bonds"
Shares of the company dropped 2 percent to $218.42 at 4 p.m., the biggest decline in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Goldman wasn't the only firm to do a private deal recently that helped the government raise funds.


Rumman Raees has never played an ODI for Pakistan. While he might not get the opportunity to bowl against Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni who he termed as "two of the best batsmen of modern cricket", he will be hoping he gets the chance against South Africa.

They also have Junaid Khan and Faheem Ashraf in their Arsenal who are likely to replace the injured bowler in the starting XI against South Africa on Wednesday (June 7).

Raees wants to put his skills to test in the Champions Trophy after he was given only one match against West Indies in his last appearance for Pakistan against West Indies. He has an impressive record in List A cricket where he has picked up 64 wickets in 42 matches at an economy rate of 4.77.

He sustained an injury that saw him leave the field and a scan has confirmed that Wahab Riaz suffered a deltoid ligament complex which will take a minimum of two weeks to recover.
