Umer Gul gets an ugly hit on the nose that made him walk off the ground yesterday against the Karachi Blues. The future of Umer Gul for the rest of the tournament is still not announced at the moment. This is a big blow for the Islamabad division.
The hit came from the bat of Khurram Manzoor who in that over was already blazing boundaries one after the other. It was a short ball outside the off stump from Junaid which Khurram belted like a baseball shot.
The ball went flying like a stinger towards Umer Gul at mid-off and went straight through his hands and hit him right on the nose. The only fault that Umer had there was misjudgment towards the speed of the ball.
