Pakistan’s Shan Masood had a scan after injury, learn why it’s a relief to the team

Pakistani batsman Shan Masood had to be taken to hospital on Sunday for a scan after sustaining a head injury during a practice session at the Melbourne Cricket Ground ahead of their Super 12 match against India in the ICC T20 World Cup. A Cricbuzz report said Masood, 33, suffered a head injury while waiting for his turn to bat in Pakistan’s practice session.

The report stated, “Masood fell to the ground in pain after the injury and was treated by the team doctor. Fortunately, he did not sustain many injuries, but was taken to hospital for further investigation.”

According to another report, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that all of Masood’s neurological observations are normal and his CT scan did not confirm a serious injury where he hit the ball. He will go to the hospital on Saturday to be tested again for the injury.

Due to related injuries, Masood now faces an anxious wait to see if he will be available for selection in Pakistan’s opening match of the tournament against arch-rivals India.

Masood, who played 25 Tests and five ODIs for Pakistan, was recently included in the squad for the T20 World Cup. He made his T20 debut during Pakistan’s seven-match home series against England and appeared in all 12 matches played in preparation for the T20 World Cup.

Batting at number three in 12 T20Is, Masood has scored 220 runs at a 24.44 average and a 125 strike rate, including two half centuries. If he is not available for Sunday’s game, Pakistan could bring in a similar substitute in Fakhar Zaman, who was recently added to Pakistan’s 15-man squad in place of the injured Usman Qadir.
