Pakistan sends reserve wicketkeeper

November 12, 2007 15:27 IST

Pakistan is flying out Sarfraz Ahmed to India as a reinforcement for injured wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Sunday.

"The tour selection committee has sent a request for a second keeper as Akmal has a finger injury which has worsened. The national selectors will now decide on the replacement," a board spokesman said.

Chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed said that Ahmed, who led Pakistan to the ICC [Images] Youth World Cup title last year and has been tipped as a future replacement for Akmal, had been chosen and would join the team by Tuesday.

"We see him as a good long-term investment for the team," the chief selector said.

Pakistan lost the third one-day international on Sunday in Kanpur and trail 2-1 in the five-match series.
