Injured Junaid ruled out of ODI series

Pakistan will be without veteran fast bowler Junaid Khan for the rest of the ODI series against Australia in the UAE, after he picked up a knee injury in training.

The paceman has been ruled out for up to six weeks after twisting his knee. He was sent for scans, and will take no further part in the tour, a blow for the Test side especially.

Junaid did not play in the opening ODI, which Australia won by 93 runs in Sharjah on Tuesday.
