Pakistan broke a four-year losing streak of 12 consecutive ODIs against New Zealand by six wickets to level the one-day series at 1-1.

But an incident happened in the 13th over of the Pakistan innings, when Lockie Ferguson dug the ball in short which took off wildly to hit opener Imam-ul-Haq on the grille of the helmet. The batsman fell on the ground as he was hurt and was taken quickly for medical assistance.

The team management, after the incident, said that the 22-year-old would undergo CT scan and be monitored for the next 48 hours. But later PCB took to Twitter to give an update.

“Imam-ul-Haq all scans clear. He joined the team and will remain under observation of Team Physio,” it said.

A picture along with the cricketer, confirming that Imam was fine, was also posted soon by Shoaib Malik.

Meanwhile, the Man-of-the-match was bagged by Shaheen Afridi for his career-best 4/38. Opener Fakhar Zaman hit a run-a-ball 88.

The third and last ODI will be played on Sunday.
