Posted On

Afghanistan star Rashid Khan has failed a concussion test after receiving a blow on the head when batting during the World Cup game against New Zealand on Saturday.


The 20-year-old, who was struck on the head when he was dismissed by Lockie Ferguson for zero, will take no further part in the game as a precaution.

The incident occurred in the 34th over of Afghanistan’s innings, which saw Gulbadin Naib’s men bowled out for 172 in Taunton.


Rashid walked away from the pitch with his head down, and was checked by his team’s medical staff before he reached the boundary.
