Lahore: Pakistan fast bowler Sohail Khan is doubtful for the upcoming series against Bangladesh as he was complaining of a stiff back while practicing at the national camp. Sohail had a decent outing in the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, which included a fibe-wicket haul against India in Pakistan’s opening match of the tournament.

A call on whether he will travel to Bangladesh will be taken after receiving the scan reports, according to a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official.  Earlier Pakistan middle-order batsman Sohaib Maqsood was ruled out due to a wrist fracture, which he suffered on the very first day of the training camp at the Gaddafi stadium, according to dawn.com

Junaid Khan seems to be likely candidate to replace Sohail in the T20 and One-Day International (ODI) squad, if he is not fit to tour Bangladesh. Junaid had missed out on the plane to the World Cup due to fitness issues. The first ODI between Bangladesh and Pakistan starts from April 17 at Dhaka.
