DUBAI – England’s Eoin Morgan has replaced Imad Wasim as the new skipper of Karachi Kings.
Imad had to be stretchered off after he tumbled backwards to grab a catch of Sohail Khan, hitting his head on the ground as he completed the brilliant catch.
The all-rounder was taken to medical facility, where he was kept under observation for 24 hours. He was declared stable soon after, but was said to have suffered from a mild concussion.
However, he was discharged from the hospital yesterday (Tuesday), but was advised to take couple of days rest.
The PSL franchise announced the decision on Twitter:
