Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Irfan has been ruled out of the rest of the World Cup with a stress fracture of the hip bone.

Irfan, 32, missed Pakistan’s final group match, the win over Ireland in Adelaide on Sunday, with the injury.

The 7ft 1in pace bowler took 8 wickets in his 5, 2015 World Cup matches, with best figures of 4-30 against Zimbabwe.

Pakistan may consider calling up a replacement after Friday’s quarter-final against Australia in Adelaide.

Junaid Khan, who dropped out of Pakistan’s initial 15-man squad before the World Cup with a hamstring injury, could replace Irfan after declaring himself “100% fit”   ahead of a club match in Abbottabad on Sunday.

Irfan underwent an MRI scan on Monday that showed a stress injury, but a more detailed scan on Tuesday highlighted a stress fractures.
