Rawalpindi: Balochistan’s captain Imam-ul-Haq has been advised to have three-day rest by the doctors after he suffered scratches on his rib cage yesterday.
Imam is not part of the side today against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the 15th match of the National T20 Cup. Bismillah Khan is leading Balochistan in his absence.
Imam will leave for Lahore and join the side during second leg, scheduled in Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium from October 6.
It must be noted that Imam was admitted to a hospital after he suffered an injury while colliding with the boundary boards as he tried to stop a boundary.
He was taken away on a stretcher after the team’s physiotherapist treated him initially. Later in the day, the injury was not serious as the X-ray had shown that Imam’s ribs were not fractured.
