Tuba Hassan has been ruled out of the T20 tri-series against West Indies Women A and Thailand Women Emerging and the subsequent two T20s against Thailand Women Emerging.
The T20 tri-series will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore from 3 to 8 November, while the two T20s against Thailand Women Emerging will take place on 10 and 11 November at the same venue.
Tuba sustained an injury during the first one-day against West Indies Women A on 24 October at Ghani Glass Ground, Lahore while attempting a catch at long-off. Tuba suffered a laceration on her right cheek and presented symptoms of a concussion. She was then declared unfit to play by the medical panel, after which Saima Malik was drafted in as a concussion substitute.
The 23-year-old leg-spinner has been replaced by all-rounder Kaynat Hafeez in Pakistan Women A squad for the upcoming T20s.
Tuba has been advised one week’s rest, following which she will proceed with her rehabilitation.
