Naseem Shah underwent a successful shoulder surgery in a private hospital in London.
The surgery, lasting approximately half an hour, was deemed a success by medical professionals who are confident that the 20-year-old cricketer is well on his way to a full recovery.
Shah had been dealing with a shoulder injury for some time, and this procedure was a necessary step to ensure his long-term fitness.
Medical experts have recommended a rest period of 4 to 6 weeks for Naseem Shah to allow his shoulder to heal properly.
After this initial recovery period, he is expected to resume practice sessions, with the goal of regaining full fitness and making himself available for national team selection.
