Babar Azam faces big setback

*LONDON: Babar Azam, Pakistan's right-handed batsman, will not shine in the remainder of the two-match Test series against England as he got forearm fracture while bating on the second day of the first match at Lord´s on Friday.*

The top order batsman had scored 68 to help Pakistan reach 350-8 before he was retired hurt after being struck by a Ben Stokes delivery.

According to Pakistan physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon, in that last session he was called off the field because he did not feel comfortable while griping his bat and was treated for pain.

He added that the management decided to do take him to hospital for precautionary X-ray at the end of the day where he was confirmed that there was a fracture of the forearm, just above the wrist.
