Pakistan Women opener Javeria Khan has been ruled out of the Women's World T20 after fracturing her right thumb while batting in the game against West Indies Women in Chennai on Wednesday. Javeria was struck by a bouncer from pacer Shamilia Connell in the first over of the chase - the ball struck her on the thumb before deflecting onto her neck beneath her ear.

Ayesha Zafar, who has played two T20Is and one ODI, has been named as Javeria's replacement.

Javeria had to retire hurt after the blow, being stretchered off before being taken to a nearby hospital for a CT scan which was clear. A replacement for her in the squad is expected to be named later today.

Pakistan Women went on the lose Wednesday's game - their first of the tournament - by four runs. Their next game is scheduled for Saturday, against India in Delhi.

    This will be a great blow for the Pakistan team. She is one of the better batters in the side. She was consistently scoring runs for Pakistan over the last few months.

    May she get will soon. If she was able to play her full inning then the result will be different.
