Babar Azam ruled out of England tour due to fracture


Pakistan batsman Babar Azam has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing Test series against England after the scans at the end of Day 2 or the Lord’s game revealed a fracture on his left hand. The middle-order batsman has been ruled out of action for 4-6 weeks, according to the Pakistan team physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon.

Azam retired hurt after copping a blow to his left arm, off the bowling of Ben Stokes while batting on 68, and was forced off the field.

Even though the batsman did not leave for x-rays straightway, Azam did not take field for the remainder of day.
