Pakistan’s injuries continue

Injuries continue to hurt Pakistan with Imran Farhat likely to miss the third Test against England at Headingley after breaking his right ring finger during the second Test defeat.

Farhat suffered the injury while taking the catch that dismissed Kevin Pietersen.

Salman Butt and Taufeeq Umar are likely players to fight it out for the open position at the top of the order.

Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer is considering leaving out Shahid Afridi for an extra seam bowler with the Headingly pitch usually favouring the fast bowlers.

The Test starts on Friday 4th August.
