Dhaka Gladiators opener and Pakistan batsman Imran Nazir was hit on the head by a Peter Trego bouncer during the Bangladesh Premier League game in Chittagong.

Nazir suffered the blow in the seventh over of Dhaka's chase against Sylhet Royals when he was on 31. He had a hat on rather than a helmet and immediately went down to the ground holding his head. Minutes later he walked off with physio Vibhav Singh holding an ice-pack on the injured area on the side of Nazir's head.

Nazir was immediately taken to a local clinic where it was found that he was out of danger. The medical reports showed that he had suffered soft tissue damage. As a precautionary measure, Nazir will be kept under observation in Chittagong for an additional day. Dhaka's next game is against Chittagong Kings at home on February 24.

I am a big Pakistan cricket team fan but i don't understand one thing about the Pakistani players. They don't wear helmet when facing fast bowlers. Adnan Akmal almost got his teeth knocked out while he was keeping very close to the stump during a test in Dhaka but not wearing a helmet. Getting killed by a super-fast ball or paralyzed by it doesn't show how brave you are.
