Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz stated that he played with a fractured finger in an ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Afghanistan on June 29. Riaz took two wickets in eight overs and played a crucial knock with the bat that helped Pakistan win by 3 wickets.
“See, I already knew that I had a fractured finger. It’s all about will-power. I am here to give whatever my team requires,” said Riaz. “I told the captain (Sarfaraz Ahmed) that I would give 100 percent in bowling, but might come up short in other departments. ‘If you can bowl, that’s enough’ was his reply. That was a big boost and I was ready for the game.”
