Gul doubtful for fourth Test

Pakistan fast bowler Umar Gul who was sidelined due to injury in the third Test that Pakistan won is doubtful for the fourth and final Test against England scheduled to be held at Lord's on Thursday.

Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed confirmed from London that Gul had recovered 90 per cent from his hamstring injury that ruled him out of the third Test, which Pakistan won at the Oval last week.

"He has recovered well and looks certain to play in the one-day series next month. But we will know in next 24 hours if he can also be fit for the fourth Test as well," Yawar said.

Gul, one of Pakistan's most experienced bowlers, sustained a hamstring injury during the second Test at Edgbaston and has been advised to rest for three to four weeks.

But Yawar said the pace bowler had made a rapid recovery from his injury and would undergo fresh fitness tests and MRI scans.
