Razzaq may miss first Test

Karachi: Pakistan's Abdul Razzaq could miss the first Test against India next month after he was admitted to a hospital in Karachi with a severe chest infection. The first Test starts on January 13. Razzaq had recently missed the entire Test series against England because of an elbow injury, but he did return to play the one-dayers which Pakistan won 3-2. Razzaq's injury though could give Umar Gul a chance for a comeback. He hasn't played since the Lahore Test against India in April 2004. Peshawar to host ODI Meanwhile the Indian security delegation currently in Pakistan has given the all-clear to Peshawar to host a one-dayer against India.
