Pakistan’s batsman Azam Khan has been hospitalised after sustaining a head injury during the training session ahead of the remaining T20 matches against the West Indies.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Friday that Azam, 22, has been ruled out of the second and third T20Is against West Indies.

He got a blow on the head during a training session. He was immediately taken to a hospital for further tests.

“A neurosurgeon recommended an observation in hospital for 24 hours,” the PCB said. He will then be reassessed on Monday.

His availability for the 4th and final T20I will depend on the reassessment.

Pakistan are currently in the West Indies to play four T20Is and two Test matches. The first match between the two sides was washed out on July 28.
