The Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed that all-rounder Shadab Khan will not take part in the first T20I against Zimbabwe in Rawalpindi on Saturday.
The leg-spinner has been advised rest by the medical team as he is recovering from a leg injury which he sustained during a practice match, the PCB said in a press release.
He was not part of the Pakistan side which won the three-match ODI series against the Chevrons.
The decision to include the 22-year-old in the remaining T20I games will be taken later.
