Pakistan middle-order batsman Haris Sohail is recovering well from a career-threatening knee injury and has vowed that he will soon make a comeback for the national side.
Left-hand batsman Haris came into Pakistan team after his consistence performance in domestic cricket.
My recovery is a little slow, but I am getting better day by day and with God’s help, I should recover completely,
This is slow but meticulously managed the process. I have not started any cricket practice as yet as the rehabilitation phase is still in progress. These are just the starting stages of my rehabilitation; the total recovery is around six months long.
The southpaw made an appearance on the Pakistan cricket scene in 2013 and soon registered his place in the middle order of all three formats. Unluckily, he incurred a knee injury in June 2015 for which he was operated in December 2015.
Haris Sohail further added that he is recovering well and will be starting cricket-related training in June.
I can only start sports related activity after four of five months into this recovery period of six months, he explained. So, I expect to start training later this month and start cricket-related training around June.
Haris has a healthy average of 43 after representing Pakistan in 22 ODIs. He has scored 774 runs at a strike rate of 82.86. Thus, the vacant space left by Haris’ in the middle order was felt by Pakistan during their Asia Cup and World T20 campaigns. However, Haris believes surgery was the only way out after the career-threatening injury.
The injury was a serious one, and surgery was the last choice after all other options had been exhausted, but I am confident that I will be able to recover fully and serve Pakistan again, said Haris.
Meanwhile, with Pakistan’s tour of England this summer, Haris is not sure if he will be able to make it into the squad.
