There is serious concern about the status of Pakistan opening batsman ImamulHaq as he got retired hurt after being hit by England pacer Mark Wood delivery on arm.

 The incident took place in the fourth over of Friday’s fourth One Day International of the five-match series at Trent Bridge when Imam missed an intended pull off an 89 mph delivery from the recalled Mark Wood that hit him on the elbow.

Imam, fresh from his career-best 151 in the third ODI at Bristol on Tuesday, fell to the ground and winced on the turf in the agony.

The 23-year-old nephew of Pakistan great and selection chief Inzamam-ul-Haq then had several minutes’ treatment before retiring hurt on three not out, with the tourists then nine without loss. As per latest reports Imam has been taken to hospital and further reports are awaited.
