Pakistan batter Shan Masood was taken to hospital for scans after suffering a freak injury during a training session at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday, October 21. The 33-year-old southpaw was struck on the side of his head while waiting for his turn to bat. Masood collapsed to the ground writhing in pain and was attended to by the team doctor. Thankfully, he could walk off the practise area and was subsequently taken to the hospital for further investigation of the freak injury.
A moment of extreme scare. Mohammad Nawaz is distraught and down on the ground after his shot hits Shan Masood flash at the back of his neck😳
