Imam clear after scans

Pakistan batsman Imam-ul-Haq's scans returned clear after he was rushed to the hospital for 'precautionary tests' following a blow to the helmet during the second ODI against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.

The PCB said Imam will remain under the team Physio's observation.

The opener was struck on the grille off the first ball of the 13th over from New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, when he was batting on 16, and retired hurt shortly after.

He couldn’t gather his balance despite a short break and help from the physiotherapist.

The team’s doctor walked him out of the pitch after initially treating him on the ground. 

Before being declared retired hurt on 16, imam got up to bat but failed to maintain balance.

He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
