Pacer Haris Rauf has been ruled out of the remainder of the three-Test series against England owing to a “grade-II strain in his right quad”, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old fast bowler underwent an MRI scan during the first day’s play of the Rawalpindi Test after he rolled over the ball while fielding.

“The scans and the subsequent assessment by the PCB medical staff concluded that the fast bowler suffered a grade-II strain,” a statement from PCB said.

“Haris will travel to Lahore where he will begin his rehabilitation at the National High Performance Centre.” England notched up a sensational 74-run win in the opening Test on Monday.
