Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan walked off the field against South Africa after injuring himself in the second innings. Usama Mir came in as a replacement for Shadab at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai on Friday, October 27.

As the second innings unfolded in Chennai, Shadab was seen attempting a throw when he lost his balance and fell abruptly on the field. The fall was nothing short of alarming and the immediate reaction of everyone, both on and off the field, was that Shadab had injured his shoulder, due to the way in which he fell.

However, as is frequent in these scenarios, instant video replays were at the ready to offer a closer examination of the incident. To everyone's shock, the replays revealed that the all-rounder had not suffered a shoulder injury, but rather had suffered whiplash.

Whiplash is a neck injury which is caused due to forceful,

rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip.

Following Shadab’s injury, Pakistan submitted a concussion substitute request, which was approved by the match referee. Leg-spinner Usama Mir came in as Shadab's replacement for the rest of the match.

Shadab played a brilliant knock for his side in the first innings of their contest against the Proteas. He scored 43 runs off 36 balls, hitting three boundaries and two sixes. Shadab formed a crucial 84-run partnership with Saul Shakeel to propel Pakistan in the first innings following skipper Babar Azam’s dismissal.

His quick-fire knock helped Pakistan post 270 runs on the scoreboard. Pakistan have won two of their opening five matches in the 2023 World Cup and will be hoping to register a win against South Africa and keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.
