Upon Shamilia Connell’s fifth ball, a ball rose and hit Javeria on the jaw pretty hard. Sidra Ameen immediately signaled towards the camp, calling for a stretcher.

After moments of uncertainty and panic, Javeria became unconscious and was taken off the field on and towards the hospital for a CT scan. The scans revealed her stable and no major internal injury was shown.

However, she will still be kept under observation for one more day. West Indian bowlers made sure that Pakistan faces defeat. Eventually Pakistan lost by 4 runs with 5 lost wickets.
