Karachi:After initially being told that he may have to undergo a surgery on his injured right shoulder, Pakistan ace middle-order batsman Yousuf Youhana can heave a sigh of relief.

The medical commission of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that Youhana can recover from his shoulder injury by undergoing a six-week rehabilitation course.

According to the Pakistan Cricket Board, the doctors of the commission felt that surgery should be kept as a last option as he could recover through a proper rehabilitation process.

The silky batsman will start his rehabilation programme under the supervision of trainer Grant Compton and Dr Sohail Saleem.
