Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz cannot play again in the ongoing Champions Trophy In the first match against India, the left-hander was injured in ankle injury.

Pakistan paceman Wahab Riaz took to Twitter on Wednesday to apologise for his lacklustre showing against arch-rivals India in the Champions Trophy, saying he had "let down his nation".

He twisted his ankle in his follow-through in the 46th over of the innings and the PCB has put in a request for a replacement player to the ICC Technical Committee. "Indian team executed their plans well and they won but I think Pakistan will do better in the upcoming matches", said Raees. "I was only able to play one match against West Indies (the fourth T20I) but now I am looking to play more matches and perform".

Rumman Raees has never played an ODI for Pakistan. It turned out to be a miserable match for Wahab as he had been hammered all over the ground and conceeded 87 runs in 8.4 overs, before falling in his delivery stride.

Virender Sehwag forwards two-line resume, BCCI demands a elaborate version
We had to ask him to send his CV too along with his application. "It will the first time he will be appearing for an interview". Amongst all the prominent names that applied for the job, former Australian cricketer Shane Warne was not one of them.

The 30-year-old middle order batsman, who made his global debut in 2006, was dismissed for nought against the South Africans as Sri Lanka lost their Group B opener by 96 runs.

A scan confirmed a "deltoid ligament complex", and Wahab will need two weeks to recover.

The 25-year-old has also taken 123 wickets in 42 first- class matches.

However, the left-arm pacer will not get a chance to bowl to any of those batsmen just yet, since left-arm fast-bowler Junaid Khan will be playing against South Africa in place of Wahab.
