TAUNTON, England : Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has been ruled out of Thursday's warmup match against Somerset after being hit in the nose by a ball during practice.


Akmal received medical treatment on site after being hit by a bowled ball in the nets on Thursday morning.

Pakistan manager Yawar Saeed says Akmal is "perfectly all right. He has a bit of bleeding but nothing broken."

Akmal was replaced for Thursday's match by Azhar Ali. However, Saeed said Akmal will be fit for Pakistan's Twenty20 and one-day international series against England.

The incident came as Pakistan players Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer faced questions at the Pakistan High Commission in London over alleged spot-fixing allegations. AP
