Guyana: Pakistan has suffered a setback ahead of the second T20 International against West Indies on Saturday. Young batsman Azam Khan suffered a head injury while batting in the nets. The 22-year-old was immediately taken to the hospital and the Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed that he has been CT scanned.
The right-handed batsman was wearing his helmet and all safety equipment, but the ball hit his head while batting. The doctors analyzed the CT scan report and recommended the cricketer to be kept under observation for 24 hours. The next investigation of Azam Khan will be done on Monday i.e. on 2 August.
The T20I series of four T20 International matches rescheduled between West Indies and Pakistan started on 28 July. The rain spoiled the fun of the first match. Only 9 overs were played in this match, in which West Indies scored 85 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. After the first match was washed out in rain, this series has become virtually three T20 International matches.
With only three months to go for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 to begin, both the teams will look to put up a strong performance in this series to prepare for the global event and will also focus on building their best team combination.
Pakistan will not refrain from trying players
In Pakistan’s limited overs series against England, the team management was severely criticized for not giving chances to players like Azam Khan, Shoaib Maksoor and Mohammad Hasnain. Captain Babar Azam had told the media in the virtual press conference before the series that all three players would get a chance during the T20 series.
Babar Azam had said, ‘We did not get a chance to try different combinations against England. We will now adopt different combinations. We will learn from our mistakes. We will increase the confidence of our players. We will also work on our fielding. Hope we get better results.
