Mohammad Irfan starts training, hoping to play 2015 World Cup
LAHORE: Fast bowler of National Cricket team Mohammad Irfan has started the training at National Cricket Academy (NCA), Lahore after six weeks of rehabilitation programme, ARY News reported.
According to the latest medical report of Irfan, he does not need surgery for his injured hip and could be a chance for the 2015 World Cup as his airline fracture seems to have healed.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is organizing a month-long summer camp and Irfan will be invited to rebuild his fitness.
Mohammad Irfan also expressed strong hopes to be fit soon and will start playing for Pakistan.
Irfan, 31, has been sidelined since he injured his hip during the second T20 international against South Africa in Dubai in November 2013. After six weeks of rehab following the hairline fracture, Irfan made a swift return during the domestic Twenty20 Cup in Rawalpindi, but only aggravated the injury, resulting in to more fractures to his hip.
Since then, Irfan has been at the NCA, working with doctors on a specialised rehab programme. If he had failed to show enough progress the PCB could have flown him to Australia for surgery.
