Pakistan's Haris Rauf Ruled Out of Crucial Clash Against India

Pakistan's Haris Rauf won't bowl on September 11 due to an oblique muscle issue.

Rauf is the leading wicket-taker in the 2023 Asia Cup with nine wickets.

Babar Azam, Pakistan's captain, will need to find other bowlers to cover Rauf's overs.

Rauf bowled five overs on the previous day but didn't take any wickets.

Rain delayed the start of play on the reserve day at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

Pakistan's bowling coach, Morne Morkel, explained the decision to rest Rauf as a precaution with the World Cup approaching.
