Azam Khan Out Of Two West Indies T20Is Due To Head Injury

Azam Khan, who had been ruled out of two WI T20Is due to head injury, is finally back in the field. The player had been previously ruled out due to a head injury sustained during training in Guyana. Fortunately for him, he was wearing a helmet during training time. He did not sustain any injuries nor fell unconscious. However, the doctor’s team insisted on taking him to the hospital to have him checked as a precautionary measure. After keeping him under 24 hour observation and conducting the necessary medical tests, the neurosurgeon allowed him to be discharged. h

The national team body also allowed him to be selected for the upcoming matches in West Indies vs. Pakistan T20 Series after reassessing his fitness. Since he came to the national side, he has not had a chance to be selected among the hotly contested middle-order slot. This comes as a relief as he will be taking part in the last quarter.

The 22-year-old batsman who missed the second game of the four-match T20I series will be able to play in the fourth game against Pakistan. 

Azam Khan, son of the legendary Moin Khan, received great backing from coach Misbah ul Haq who believed Azam shouldn’t be judged on just two knocks out against England. The 22-year-old made his debut against England, where he returned scores of 5 and 1 in the two games. Azam Khan, however, didn’t get a chance to bat against Barbados in the opening of the T20 as the matches were called off after heavy rains.

Filled with confidence gained from the previous wins, the host, Pakistan, looks forward to winning as the two teams clash in the test series going on between August 12- August 20. Get all the sports news updates only on Pure Win News.
