Flower said, “His absence is a blow, there is no doubt about it. We are hoping that he can make a comeback in the last matches of the tournament.
“I had largely ruled him out as a selection option, and if he is fit during the tournament, I see it as a bonus. But I’m certainly not expecting it.” When Flower was asked whether Mohsin’s absence would make the team weak in terms of bowling the last over. He said, “It will be known soon whether we are weak in the last overs or the middle overs. I don’t think so though. We don’t have to worry too much about what others think, our job is to play well on the field.
