ESPNcricinfo has learnt he was struck by a fast bowler, and will undergo a CT scan as a precautionary measure
ESPNcricinfo has learnt that Khan did not lose consciousness and was wearing a helmet at the time he was hit. The Pakistan team doctor, Riaz Ahmed, accompanied him to hospital, with the PCB saying more information would follow once they review Khan’s CT scans.
Since being called up to the national side, Khan hasn’t yet had the chance to nail down a fiercely-contested middle-order slot ahead of the T20 World Cup squad announcement, with this series the last T20I engagement before Pakistan name their squad. He came in to bat in the last over on debut, and got out cheaply in the game that followed, only to be dropped for the decider against England.
All three remaining games will take place in Guyana, with Saturday’s contest the first of back-to-back weekend games, before the final match on Tuesday. The T20Is will be followed by two Tests starting August 12 and 20, and both will be played in Kingston.
