ABU DHABI: Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad suffered a fractured skull after being hit by a bouncer during the second day of the first Test against New Zealand on Monday.

Shehzad, 22, hit a wicket off New Zealand's seamer Corey Andeson. He scored a career-best 176 but was dismissed in the last over before lunch.

Shehzad attempted a hook but missed the ball which hit him on the side of the temple. He fell and as he did so, his bat hit the stumps for a hit-wicket dismissal.
