Babar Azam to miss rest of series with broken wrist

London: Pakistan batsman Babar Azam has been ruled out of the rest of the two-match series in England after breaking a wrist on day two of the first Test.

Babar, 23, top-scored with 68 to help the tourists to 350-8, a lead of 166.

But he had to retire hurt before the close of play at Lord's after being struck on the left wrist by a delivery from England's Ben Stokes.

"An X-ray unfortunately confirmed a fractured left wrist," said Pakistan physiotherapist Cliff Deacon.

"Normally with these sort of fractures, recovery varies between four to six weeks."
