    Faisal Iqbal & Fazel Akbar for newzeland tour\ Ezaj ahmed amd Inzy for the 2nd. test





    Two Pakistani cricketers leave for New
    Zealand


    KARACHI, March 5 (AFP) - Pakistan Monday rushed young batsman Faisal Iqbal
    and rookie pacer Fazle Akbar to join its injury-plagued cricket team in New Zealand,
    a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said.

    ``Iqbal and Akbar have left for New Zealand this evening and will join the team
    before the first Test,'' PCB director of operations Brigadier Munawwar Rana said.

    Pakistan will play host New Zealand in the first of the three Test series at Auckland
    starting March 8.

    Experienced batsman Ejaz Ahmed is leaving on Wednesday but he will miss the first
    Test.

    Pakistan team's injury woes deepened after key players Wasim Akram, Saeed
    Anwar and Azhar Mahmood were ruled unfit for the Test series and will return home
    in the next few days.

    Demon pacer Shoaib Akhtar had already returned home after his hamstring injury
    recurred and his bowling action was questioned for the second time.

    Vice captain Inzamam-ul-Haq will stay in New Zealand where he is recovering from
    groin injury and may play in the second Test.
