Due to an injury, Wahab Riaz will not participate in the remainder of The Hundred.
The seasoned Pakistani quick only played one game for the Northern Superchargers on August 14, going 0 for 15 from 10 deliveries against the London Spirit.
Due to visa complications, the 37-year-old was unable to attend the team’s tournament debut against Manchester Originals, but he was anticipated to be available for the entire event.
Wayne Parnell, who was already scheduled to join the Superchargers team later in the competition as a replacement for Dwayne Bravo, will take his place.
Over the course of his professional career, Parnell has played for five different counties and has taken 236 wickets in 235 T20 matches with an economy rate of 7.83. He can play in the Superchargers match against the Birmingham Phoenix.
It Has Not Been An Ideal Stat For Us: Dwayne Bravo
Riaz’s teammate Dwayne Bravo in an interview said about the team’s campaign so far, “It hasn’t been an ideal start after winning our opening game, losing three games on the trot. I am enjoying the tournament and the team and my new teammates, but we need to start winning.
I think I’ll be happier if we start doing that. We have the depth and the quality of players. Nothing is wrong with losing games, but I think it is important that we really have a better finish in the second half of the tournament. We are in must-win scenarios, but these are things as professional athletes that we have to be prepared for and look forward to the challenge.”
“I’ve enjoyed bowling and I’m looking forward to the last few games that I have left. Every tournament is good, every tournament has the best players playing so it’s not about where it ranks but I know it’s a prestigious tournament and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to play in a global tournament like The Hundred.”
