AB de Villiers will take over as captain in his absence.

Multan Sultans are 34-0 at the end of 4 overs after being sent in to bat first by Lahore Qalandars in the 10th match of the Pakistan Super League at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Hafeez sustained the injury in the 13th over of the Karachi innings when Colin Ingram smashed a flighted delivery back at the bowler and he was visibly in pain. Hafeez has now been advised to undergo surgery either in Dubai or London and he has been released by his franchise. Coach Mickey Arthur has already said that Pakistan will form his likely team for the World Cup after the ODI series against Australia in the UAE next month.

Evans, 31, hit a polished 49 in Multan's narrow seven-run defeat against Karachi Kings on his PSL debut before managing 15 in his team's win over Lahore Qalandars.

The league's growing profile means it is the first big chance for the left-handed batsman to rehabilitate himself since his high-profile ban for a spot-fixing scandal which erupted on Pakistan's 2010 tour of England.

Kylie explained that her famous momager Kris Jenner and dad Caitlyn financially "cut her off at the age of 15". "I'll let everybody know", she said.

His teammates, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were also given similar bans by the ICC which expired in 2015.

"It's been a long time and I have been doing all my training and playing domestic cricket and trying my best to play for Pakistan", said Butt. In the two Twenty20 global series against Australia and New Zealand, Hafeez averaged 40 and a whopping 132 respectively as Pakistan dominated.

Since his return to domestic cricket in Pakistan, he has been a prolific run scorer, finishing with 536 runs in the National One-Day Cup in early 2016 - his first tournament since being cleared to play.
