Adelaide: Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Irfan has been ruled out of Pakistan's squad ahead of the World Cup quarter-final against Australia due to a stress fracture of the pelvis.
The 7-foot (2.1-meter) tall fast bowler had medical scans on Monday which revealed a stress injury, but weren't considered conclusive.
Pakistan team physiotherapist Brad Robinson ordered further scans on Tuesday, which confirmed the full extent of the injury.
Robinson says, "This injury rules Irfan out of the World Cup."
Pakistan haven't indicated if they will call in a replacement ahead of Friday's quarter-final against the tournament co-hosts and four-time champions.
The left-armer took eight wickets in Pakistan's first five games at the tournament.
