Pakistan has summoned Sajid Khan as a backup option to reinforce their spin department. Meanwhile, the medical team will closely evaluate Abrar’s injury, and he is scheduled for an intervention in Perth soon. Post the intervention, a conservative rehabilitation program, overseen by the team’s medical staff will commence as Abrar begins his path to recovery. However, his participation in the series remains undecided. A final decision on his involvement is expected before the second Test, slated to begin on Boxing Day in Melbourne.

As a wicket-taking bowler, Abrar has already made a mark in his early Test career. Despite being in the initial phase, he has showcased his prowess by securing 38 wickets in six matches, boasting two five-wicket hauls. The first Test against Australia would have presented his maiden challenge outside the Asian subcontinent, highlighting the significance of his absence in the opening encounter.
