Mushfiqur taken to hospital after being hit on head

WELLINGTON: Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim was taken to hospital by ambulance today after being hit on the head by a bouncer from New Zealand's Tim Southee.
Mushfiqur, who was wearing a helmet, slowly went to the ground but then rolled over onto his back and was immediately attended to by medical staff from both teams before paramedics with an on-site ambulance rushed onto the field.
The 29-year-old, who was deemed fit enough to bat on the final day of the first test after X-rays cleared him of broken fingers, was moving his arms and legs as he responded to treatment.
Mushfiqur, who scored 159 in the first innings, was on 13 when he left the field.
Play was held up for about 15 minutes with the visitors in trouble in their second innings at 114 for five, a lead of 170 runs.
