Pakistan Women opener Javeria Khan has fractured her right thumb while batting in the game against West Indies Women in the World T20 game in Chennai on Wednesday. Javeria was struck by a bouncer from pacer Shamilia Connell in the first over of the chase – the ball struck her on the thumb before deflecting onto her neck beneath her ear.
Javeria had to retire hurt after the blow, being stretchered off before being taken to a nearby hospital for a CT scan which was clear. A replacement for her in the squad is expected to be named later today.
Pakistan Women went on the lose Wednesday’s game – their first of the tournament – by four runs. Their next game is scheduled for Saturday, against India in Delhi.
