Right-arm Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali has been ruled out of two home Tests against Sri Lanka with a rib fracture.

The pacer, who has represented Pakistan in 53 ODIs, 30 T20Is, pulled out of a domestic tournament following pain in the left rib.

The Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed yesterday that he underwent precautionary scans in Karachi that revealed cortical rib fractures.

He had also missed the three-match T20I series against Australia due to a back problem.

Pakistan, who are currently playing Tests in Australia, will be hosting Sri Lanka for two Test matches beginning December 11th.

Sri Lanka will thus become the first nation to visit Pakistan for a Test series in more than a decade.

The first match will be played at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.
