Pakistan pace bowler Gul to miss Champions Trophy

April 18, 2013 22:51 IST

Pakistan pace bowler Umar Gul has been ruled out of the Champions Trophy one-day tournament scheduled for England in June due to a knee injury.

A Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman said Gul had injured his right knee on the tour of South Africa last month and would travel to Nelbourne for surgery in May.

Gul, 29, has taken 161 Test and 163 one-day wickets for his country.
