During the second Test match at the Singhalese Sports Club between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, player Sarfaraz Ahmed suffered an unfortunate injury. A swiftly thrown ball struck him on the head, leading to a concerning situation.
Due to the severity of his injury, Pakistan’s team management presented a request for a replacement. Agreeing with the concern, match referee David Boon allowed for a concussion substitute, with Mohammad Rizwan stepping into Sarfaraz’s shoes.
Currently, Sarfaraz’s condition is being diligently monitored by the medical team of the Pakistan Cricket Board. His recovery is their primary focus. It’s important to note that cricket values the safety of its players, which is why the provision for a concussion substitute is included in the game’s rules, safeguarding players from potential further injuries.
