Karachi Kings captain Imad Wasim is “stable” but has a “mild concussion” after injuring himself while taking a catch during the game against Lahore Qalandars on Sunday. Imad had to be stretchered off after bumping his head on the turf while completing a tough catch to dismiss Sohail Khan.
The PSL tweeted: “Imad Wasim is stable and as per protocol under observation for next 24hrs. He had a mild concussion and his vitals are fine.” Kings coach Mickey Arthur also said that Imad “seems okay” though he will remain under observation.
Arthur looks on the bright side
Kings fast bowler Usman Khan was unable to secure victory though Qalandars needed 16 to win off the final over, but Kings coach Arthur – who is also Pakistan coach – was not overly disappointed with the Super-Over defeat.
“[Usman Khan] Shinwari will learn from that experience,” Arthur said. “The poor guy is devastated in the change room but he will learn and he will become better for that experience… Ultimately that’s what this competition is for, it is for the emergence of young Pakistan cricketers, and making them feel what the pressure of playing this game is all about on the biggest stage in front of a massive TV audience. As long as our Pakistan players are developing, I’m really happy.”
