ISLAMABAD-Pakistan opener Abid Ali was cleared of a concussion and other serious injuries after he was struck on the helmet while fielding at short leg during the team’s practice match in Derby.

An ambulance was driven out to the middle of the ground, but there was relief among the Pakistan players and team management as Abid was able to get on the stretcher without the aid of anyone and was sitting up when being taken off the ground.

The 32-year-old underwent scans, which cleared him of any serious injuries, including a concussion.
