Azam Khan discharged from hospital




Middle-order batsman Azam Khan reached the stadium and enjoyed watching the second Twenty20 match between Pakistan and West Indies after his condition improved and he was discharged from the hospital.

The 22-year-old batsman met fellow players in the dressing room. Azam Khan had sustained a head injury during a practice session.

Soon afterwards, the team’s doctor, Riaz Ahmed, had rushed him to the hospital for necessary tests. Announcing his return from the hospital on the microblogging website Twitter, the Pakistan Cricket Board welcomed him back in the dressing room.

At the time he was hit, Azam Khan, the son of Pakistan’s legendary cricketer Moin Khan, was wearing a helmet and he did not lose consciousness.

The neurosurgeon examined him and recommended putting him under observation for 24 hours.

After the necessary healthcare procedure, the doctors appeared satisfied with his condition and discharged him from the hospital. Now, the team management will reassess Azam Khan’s fitness on Monday.

If he is found fit to play again, the management will give him a go-ahead to play the 4th and final T20I on August 3.—APP
