Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz will miss the rest of the Champions Trophy after suffering an ankle injury in the Group B defeat by India on Sunday.

Pakistan lost the rain-shortened match by 124 runs at Edgbaston.

Wahab, who had conceded 87 runs, left the field in the 46th over of India's innings and scans confirmed the 31-year-old had a ligament problem.

Pakistan have called up left-arm paceman Rumman Raees, 25, as a replacement.

They face South Africa in their second group game at Edgbaston on Wednesday.
