Pakistan pace bowler Bilawal Bhatti has been discharged from hospital after he was struck on the helmet while batting during Southern Punjab’s ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match against Balochistan.
Bhatti underwent CT scans, but was cleared of any injuries.
He was hit on the helmet by a short-pitched delivery from Khurram Shehzad on day three and subsequently received medical treatment to check whether he had sustained a concussion or any other injuries.
