Pakistan left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Irfan doesn’t require hip surgery, according to his latest fitness and medical report.

According to sources, Irfan even has a chance of representing Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

“He [Irfan] isn’t available immediately for national selection as yet but we have made a plan for him ahead of 2015 World Cup,” newly appointed National Cricket Academy head coach Mohammad Akram said. “We are targeting the one-dayers against Australia and New Zealand for him later this year to give him the required tempo.”

Irfan has been out of action since he injured his hip during the second Twenty20 International against South Africa in Dubai in November 2013.

After being sidelined for six weeks, Irfan tried to make his domestic comeback, but failed miserably as he aggravated his hip injury and even sustained more fractures.
