Babar Azam retired hurt on Day 3 of the 1st Test against England

Pakistan batsman Babar Azam will miss the rest of the first Test against England at Lord's, and the second Test in Leeds, after scans showed he has a broken forearm.

An X-ray showed a fracture just above his left wrist.

Pakistan added 13 runs before being bowled out for 363 early on the third day of the first Test against England at Lord's, giving the tourists a first-innings lead of 179 on Saturday.

Mohammed Abbas was the last man dismissed, when he gloved a delivery from Mark Wood to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow for 5.

Mohammad Amir was left stranded on 24 not out.

Babar Azam was unable to bat Saturday after being forced to retire hurt on 68 after tea on Friday, having been struck on the forearm by a delivery from Ben Stokes. Checks revealed a fracture and he was ruled out of the remainder of this Test and for the second and final Test in Leeds.
