Imam joins the team as he gets all scans clear

Pakistan’s opening batsman, Imam Ul Haq got all his scans clear after being hit by a fierce bouncer off New Zealand’s Lockie Ferguson in the second ODI of the three-match series on Friday in Abu Dhabi.

The 22-year old has joined the team, however, he will remain under observation of Pakistan team’s physio for some time.

Imam, who was looking decent at a score of 16 runs, was struck on the head by Ferguson on the first delivery of the 12th over. The left-handed batsman felt the effect of the blow immediately and laid down on the ground.

He seemed unconscious for a moment, but started to move afterwards. Pakistan’s physio examined him and found the symptoms of a concussion as he was hobbling while walking.

He left the ground with the physio and was seen drowsy sitting outside the boundary rope. He was then taken to a hospital in an ambulance for scans and further examination.
