Azam Khan hospitalised following blow to the head

The Pakistan batsman is believed to have been conscious after being struck on the head during training

Pakistan batsman Azam Khan has been ruled out of the second and third T20 Internationals (T20I) against West Indies after suffering a blow to the head during training. He has been taken to a hospital, as a result. According to a PCB media release, a 24-hour observation has been recommended by a neurosurgeon, following which he will be released on Monday (August 2).

According to ESPNCricinfo, it is believed that Azam did not lose consciousness upon being hit on the head and was wearing a helmet at that point. 

Azam made his international debut in a T20I against England earlier this month. He is yet to make an impact at the highest level, but in the domestic circuit and the Pakistan Super League (PSL), he is one of the fiercest hitters with a strike-rate of 152.59 in the shortest format.

Only nine overs were possible in the first T20I in Barbados. The remaining three matches will all be played in Guyana, starting Saturday (July 31). 

West Indies and Pakistan will engage in a couple of Test matches from August 12, which will be their first match in the new World Test Championship (WTC) cycle.
