Imam-ul-Haq taken to hospital for x-rays after being hit on elbow

Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq suffered a painful blow on the arm by England fast bowler Mark Wood in the fourth ODI against England at Trent Bridge, just weeks away from the 2019 ODI World Cup.

The incident took place in the fourth over when the left-hander missed an intended pull off an 89 mph delivery from Wood that hit him on the left elbow.

Imam fell to the ground and winced on the turf in agony.

The 23-year-old then had several minutes' treatment before retiring hurt on three.

According to a PCB statement, Imam has been taken to hospital for a 'precautionary' x-ray. Further updates will be provided after the x-rays,
