PAK vs WI: 2 Pakistan Cricketers suffer injuries in a car accident, PCB issues statement

PAK vs WI: Two of Pakistan’s prominent women cricketers have suffered minor injuries in a car accident that happened on Friday. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), on Saturday, confirmed the injury reports and declared both the cricketers safe following the accident.

Bismah Maroof and Ghulam Fatima suffered injuries in the accident, which are learnt to be minor. The PCB, in its statement, also revealed that both the cricketers underwent CT scans to rule out the chances of concussions and fortunately have come out clear, nor do they have any other serious injury concerns.

“Despite sustaining minor injuries, both players received immediate first aid and are currently under the care of the PCB medical team. The two players [Bismah Maroof and Ghulam Fatima] also underwent precautionary CT Scans, which came out clear,” said PCB in a statement.

Notably, the two involved Pakistan cricketers were part of the probable list of players to take on West Indies in the upcoming home white ball series, starting in April.

Pakistan will host West Indies for a three-match ODI series followed by a five-game T20I series in April 2024. The tour will begin on April 18 at the National Stadium in Karachi.

Both Maroof and Fatima were part of Pakistan’s ODI setup that toured New Zealand in December 2023. While Maroof scored 82 runs in three ODIs, which included an 86-ball 68-run knock, Ghulam Fatima scalped 6 wickets in her three outings, which included a four-fer.

Pakistan’s ODI leg against New Zealand ended in a defeat with a scoreline of 2-1 to the Kiwis.
