No replacement to be called for Umar Gul
LONDON: The Pakistan team management here has decided that no replacement bowler will be called for the injured Umar Gul, who suffered a hamstring injury during the second Test against England at Birmingham.

“We have two back up pace bowlers, Tanveer Ahmed and Wahab Riaz in the touring squad and either one of them can replace Gul for the remaining Tests," team manager Yawar Saeed said.

Both Tanveer and Wahab are with the team since the start of the tour. The Pakistan touring squad presently includes 17 players.

Yawar Saeed said that the tour selectors would decide who would play but for now they are not asking for a replacement as Gul is also due to have another scan on August 18. It would be known after the scan whether Gul can recover in time for the two Twenty20 and five one-day internationals against England next month.

Umar Gul has been advised rest for up to three weeks but the correct position Would be known next week on how much more time his recovery would take," he added.

Gul has ruptured a muscle in his thigh while bowling in England's first innings, although he batted freely, albeit with a runner, during Pakistan's second innings.

Gul had also missed the ICC World Twenty20 and Asia Cup earlier this year due to injury.

Meanwhile, chief selector Mohsin Khan and limited-overs captain Shahid Afridi are due to fly to England during the third Test to finalise the limited-overs squad.
