Nasty blow gives Rashid concussion scare ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

Awful blow gives Rashid blackout alarm

Rashid was hit on the head by Lockie Ferguson and wasn't permitted to venture out to challenge New Zealand.

Rashid Khan was unfit to bowl for Afghanistan in their match against New Zealand at Taunton in the wake of being struck on the head by a Lockie Ferguson conveyance while batting.

Rashid was hit in the 34th over in the wake of misconceiving the length of a ball from Ferguson. He dodged, supposing it shorter than it was, and the ball cannoned into his protective cap as Rashid turned his head. To make an already difficult situation even worse, the ball at that point ricocheted into Rashid's stumps to reject him for a duck.

Kane Williamson, Rashid's commander at Sunrisers Hyderabad, quickly hurried over to the batsman as he strolled off. Rashid got to the edge of the square before taking his head protector off and twisting around in clear distress. Afghanistan's physio is taken care of him quickly on the pitch before escorting him to the structure.

Rashid did not take the field after the interim and it stays vague whether he took a blackout test or was basically kept out of activity as a safety measure without a test being led.

Despite the fact that the damage isn't believed to be not kidding, with skipper Gulbadin Naib saying after the match that Rashid was feeling fine, the 23-year-old will be held under perception for the remainder of the day and will be reassessed by the group specialist on Sunday morning.

Afghanistan's next game isn't until next Saturday, against South Africa in Cardiff, which gives the leg-spinner time to recoup and Naib said he expected Rashid to be fit for that game.
