Hafeez's World Cup game is uncertain due to mosquito bites [cricket news ]

Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out of the World Twenty20 after being bitten by an Aedes mosquito.

The 40-year-old Pakistani all-rounder has symptoms of dengue. This is the news given by different media of Pakistan on Tuesday.


Hafeez's first hurdle in his preparations before the T20 World Cup was stomach ache. That is why Pakistan could not play in the first round of the domestic T20 Cup. The former captain contracted dengue before returning to field cricket after overcoming that problem.

Hafeez has been diagnosed with dengue in Lahore. The second round of Pakistan's National Twenty20 Cup is scheduled to start there on October 6.

According to Pakistani media sources, Hafeez's blood platelets have dropped a lot. In this situation, there are fears whether Hafeez will be able to perform as expected even if he returns to the National T20 Cup.

In fact, Pakistan will start their T20 World Cup campaign on October 24 with a field match against arch-rivals India.
