Left-arm Pakistan pacer Rumman Raees had sustained a bad knee injury in the third edition of the Pakistan Super League. Trying to save a boundary for his team Islamabad United against the Quetta Gladiators, he fell and hurt his right knee, and had to be carried away from the field.
He was able to stop the ball, but he fell so hard on the knee, that it crushed the upper green turf of the ground and tore the jersey near the knee area. He was assisted out of the field by his teammates and the physio, after which was taken to the hospital for further check-up.
Here is the gruesome injury
He was reviewed at a Saudi German Hospital facility in Dubai, where the matches were being played, immediately. Later, a statement was issued by Islamabad United team management saying that even though the injury is nothing extremely critical, he would need to rest his knee and thus was ruled out of the rest of the tournament.
However, it seems like Raees has recovered well, and is now sweating it out at the training sessions to make his return to professional cricket as soon as possible. He has been posting updates about his recovery on his twitter account, and the last couple of videos show him doing the run-up and ball at a better speed.
Raees back in action
The first clip was on May 16, and Raees said, “Can’t wait to bowl with full rhythm ????feeling good day by day.” See the clip below:

The next one has him doing a longer run-up, and spreading his hands in a victorious manner after the delivery. In the post, he thanked his conditioning coach Hanif Malik and manager Syed Wajahat Thanvi for helping him in the late night training.
“Bowling with 8 steps Allhumdulillah Thanks @MHanifMalik8 @WajahatThanvi for helping me in the late night training,” he says.
