Pakistan’s Ahmed Shehzad was rushed to the hospital as he suffered a neck injury after being hit by a West Indies batsman, Chadwick Walton. The West Indian was trying to reach the striker’s end and Shehzad came in his way, during the 2nd T20 played between the two teams.
The incident took place on the last ball of the fourth over which was bowled by Sohail Tanvir. Shehzad, who was inside the 30-yard circle, tried to stop a single by Marlon Samuels and collided with Chadwick Walton, who was trying to reach at the striker’s end. Both the players fell on the ground after the collision and it was later revealed that Shehzad’s neck hit Walton’s pads, causing a concussion to the Pakistani batsmen. An ambulance was rushed to the ground and Ahmed Shehzad was hospitalized immediately.
Man, that Ambulance and stretcher are the two things we never want to see on a cricket ground.

Shehzad’s dedication left us inspired when the player returned to the field after doctors cleared him after proper examination. Pakistan ended up beating West Indies by three runs at the Port of Spain and gained an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match T20Is series.
Pakistan Cricket has been struggling over the last couple of years and we haven’t seen some monumental victories coming their way. This series means a lot to them, and now they are just one win behind to clinch the title.
Moreover, BCCI has also refused to host or play with the Pakistani Cricket team despite a MoU stating that the two nations will play six bilateral series between 2015 to 2023, and if, in the coming future, the two nations clash on the pitch once again, PCB may want all of their best players in one piece.
