England vs Pakistan First Test Match. In the Test match between Pakistan and England, Pakistan has suffered a major setback during the match being played on the grounds of the Lord’s. A ball of the English all-rounder Ben Stokes hit the Pakistani batsman Babar Azam’s elbow. He got a serious injury due to this accident and ruled out of this Test series.
this happened on the second day of the first Test match on Friday. Azam was batting on 68 in the first innings. A Stokes’ ball hit on his wrist, after which he could not bat further in the innings. The depth of Azam’s injury can be judged from the fact that when the ball hit him, he left his bat and hold the injured hand. The ball hit a little high on his wrist.

According to the Pakistan Cricket team’s physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon, he can be out for about four to six weeks from cricket. The kind of injury Babar had is a serious one.
Decon said, “We decided to X-ray Babur’s wrist after the end of the day’s game. Unfortunately, observing X-ray, we came to know that his bone has been broken, due to which he is not able to hold his bat for few weeks. ”
However, Pakistan has not yet decided on the inclusion of any other batsman in the team rather than Babar. It is really going to be very difficult for Pakistan to replace Babar Azam with someone else. He has been a consistent and one of the most effective players of Pakistan for last few years.
