Eng v Pak, 1st Test, The Lord's, day 2
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."
