Afghanistan wicket-keeper batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz is expected to be fit to play for the team’s opening match in the Men’s T20 World Cup against England in Perth on Saturday after scans cleared him of a fracture.

The 20-year old was struck on the left foot by left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s inswinging yorker during Afghanistan’s warm-up match against Pakistan on Wednesday at the Gabba, which ended as a no-result because of rain.

The opener was carried off the pitch after medical attention and was later pictured wearing a protective boot on his left foot. He was sent to the hospital for scans, and the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) said that he had been cleared of a serious injury.

“Team doctor stated that the results are clear with no bone fracture,” the ACB said in a statement.

“He will be assessed in the next two days and is expected to be available for our England fixture on Saturday,” it added.

Gurbaz had struggled at the previous T20 World Cup, in 2021, making 85 runs across his five innings. He has since been promoted to open the batting on a regular basis and his availability will be a significant boost for Afghanistan ahead of their first game.
