Pandya Injured While Bowling

It was the fifth ball of the 18th over and Pandya was bowling to Babar Azam.

He rolled his arm for the delivery but after releasing the ball, he seemed to pull a muscle on his back and collapsed to the ground.

The all-rounder did not get up and looked in severe pain while Indian physio Patrick Farhat joined the teams in the middle to take a look at him. A stretcher was called and Pandya was strapped onto the board and taken off the field.
