Irfan doubtful before quarters

Pakistan pacer Muhammad Irfan remains a doubtful starter for the cricket World Cup quarter-final against Australia on Friday. PCB on Monday confirmed in a statement Irfan has been experiencing pain in his right hip region and was also rested for this reason in the match against Ireland. “Late Monday afternoon, Irfan underwent an MRI scan. The detailed report from the radiologists would be available on Tuesday. A decision will then be taken on his availability for the forthcoming quarterfinal against Australia,” the statement read.

Earlier, head coach Waqar Younis had said Irfan had been carrying a niggle since landing in New Zealand and Australia but had been playing only after taking proper treatment.
