The injury to the head of Pakistan opener Abid Ali is not serious. He will return to practice from Wednesday. Ali was injured by a ball at the helmet while fielding at forward short leg on Sunday, the third day of the ongoing cricket match between the Pakistani team.
According to a statement by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Abid has no symptoms such as mild fainting but he underwent a CT scan as a precaution, which made it clear that he had no problems.
Pakistan team doctor Dr. Sohail Saleem said that Abid will return to practice from Wednesday but he will not play further in the four-day practice match.
“Abid is fully fit and will return to practice on Wednesday after Tuesday's rest day,” he said. Pakistan has to play three Tests against England and as many T20 internationals. The first Test will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester from 5 August.
