Shahnawaz Dahani (L) and Mohammad Rizwan (R) — PCB

DUBAI: Pakistan team has received some good news ahead of their second Super Four clash against Afghanistan on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Monday that pacer Shahnawaz Dahani, who sustained an injury during Pakistan's match against Hong Kong on Friday, has shown significant improvement.

The team's medical board is continually monitoring the pacer.

In Dahani's absence, young pacer Mohammad Hasnain replaced him and put up a decent performance against India, helping his side secure a five-wicket win over the Men in Blue on Sunday at the Dubai International Stadium.

Meanwhile, the local cricket governing body also said that wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan's MRI scan results will be compiled tomorrow, following which decisions will be made.

Rizwan, who fell on his right leg while keeping a high ball against India, felt a cramp and also has pain in his knee.

Pakistan will take on Afghanistan in their next Super Four clash on Wednesday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
