On April 26, the PCB had set-up Shadab's appointment with Dr Patrick Kennedy who had put him on medication and advised two weeks of complete rest.
"It has been difficult to stay away from international cricket and watch Pakistan play. As a professional cricketer, you want to be part of the team's success. Having played in the 2017 Champions Trophy I understand the glamour, flavour and importance of global events," Shadab said.
"I am looking forward to featuring in the World Cup and will leave no stone unturned in helping Pakistan put up a strong show," he added.
Meanwhile, Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur said that Shadab's inclusion balances what the squad for the showpiece event. "I understand it will take Shadab some time to be back at his brilliant best as he has not played cricket for a few weeks, but our first game is on May 31 and he has got two weeks to regain complete form and fitness."
