Update : 22 Oct 2022, 10:38

Pakistan batter Shan Masood has been taken to hospital after suffering from head injury on Friday. He was hit by a ball on the right side of the head during the practice session.

During the practice session, all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz played a shot and the ball hit Shan's head and injured him. 

Shan Masood was wearing pads but not the helmet as he was waiting for his turn to bat. He fell to the ground and was soon attended by the team doctor.

According to Pakistan cricket Board, "Shan Masood is being taken to hospital for scans after a ball hit him in the right hand side of his head during Pakistan's net session in MCG." 

The incident happened two days before  the much-awaited Pakistan and India T20 World Cup 2022 on Sunday, 23rd October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. 

Shan Masood made his T20 debut in the home series against England in September this year. After this, he scored 220 runs in 12 matches at an average of 24.22 and a strike rate of 125. He has smashed two half-centuries so far. However, in the recent tri-series against New Zealand and Bangladesh, his performance was underwhelming.
