India all-rounder Hardik Pandya was on Wednesday stretchered off the field during the Asia Cup group league encounter against Pakistan after sustaining what seemed like a back injury.

The incident took place in the 18th over of the Pakistan innings when the all-rounder was bowling his fifth over.

 

It was the fifth delivery and Pandya, after completing the follow through, immediately felt his lower back and lay on the ground in considerable pain.

He was unable to get up and was stretchered off and was taken for medical examination.

It is not yet known that how serious the injury is and whether he will take any further part in the game.

Pandya’s figures were 4.5-0-24-0 after Babar Azam’s catch was dropped by Mahendra Singh Dhoni when the batsman was on 32.
