According to journalist Boria Majumdar, Mohammad Nawaz hit a shot and the ball ended up smacking Masood’s head during a training session. The left-hander was lying down on the ground for 5-7 minutes after being hit. However, further clarity on his availability for the marquee could only be available once he is back from the hospital.

Pakistan will be sweating on his fitness now and if concussion protocols are taken into consideration. If Shan Masood feels dizzy, he might well miss the epic clash against India. In that case, Fakhar Zaman who was included in the squad recently is likely to be included in the XI.

It also becomes imperative for them to go with Asif Ali and Iftikhar Ahmed in the XI. They haven’t been delivering consistently in the middle order. Haider Ali is another prospect who played a crucial role in the final of the tri-series against New Zealand recently. He was anyways going to make it to the XI. However, it remains to be seen if he gets to bat at number three.
