Jongwe suffers head injury in World T20 practice match


Zimbabwe all-rounder Luke Jongwe's condition is to be reviewed on Wednesday after he was admitted to hospital with a head injury sustained in a World Twenty20 practice match.

While attempting to complete a return catch, Jongwe was struck above the right eye by the ball during Zimbabwe's 17-run win over Sharjah Cricket Club in the UAE on Tuesday.

He was subsequently taken to hospital, where an x-ray revealed no damage had been suffered.

The 21-year-old also underwent an MRI scan as a precaution and was put on a drip and kept in hospital for observation because of the chance of nausea and vomiting.

Zimbabwe start their World T20 campaign on March 8 against Hong Kong.
