Inzamam-ul-Haq has backtracked on the issue of selecting a replacement for injured medium pacer Rana Naved-ul-Hasan for the Test series against England.

A day after announcing that uncapped medium pacer Samiullah Niazi would fill in for Rana, the Pakistan captain said on Sunday morning that a final decision on the replacement player would be made in the next few days.

“We would decide on this issue only after getting a final report on Rana’s injury.
