Sydney: Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez was yesterday ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an ankle injury, in yet another blow to the team before the mega-event.
The 34-year-old suffered the injury during the second ODI against New Zealand in Napier last week and has been advised to take three weeks' rest.
"Hafeez has been ruled out of the World Cup and will return home with the first available flight and in his place Nasir Jamshed has been summoned," a Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman told AFP.
