Zulqarnain Haider celebrates scoring 50 not out against England on the third day of the second Test at Edgbaston

Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider has been ruled out of the last two Tests against England with a finger injury.

The 24-year-old impressed with a battling 88 on his Test debut at Edgbaston earlier this month, after being called up to replace the out-of-form Kamran Akmal.

But the Pakistan Cricket Board have announced Haider will play no further part in the npower series after an X-ray revealed he has fractured the little finger of his right hand.

The injury was originally sustained last month, but was reportedly aggravated when Stuart Broad hurled the ball at Haider during the Second Test – an incident which cost the England bowler half of his match fee.

Vice-captain Akmal will now return to the Pakistan team for the Third Test, which begins at the Oval on Wednesday.

Pakistan, who trail 2-0 in the four-match series, are also expected to recall Mohammad Yousuf and Yasir Hameed to bolster their batting line-up.
