    Default Dravid hospitalized after being hit on jaw


    Dravid hospitalized after being hit on jaw

    DHAKA: Indian batsman Rahul Dravid has been admitted to hospital with a suspected fractured jaw after being struck on the side of his face by a bouncer from Bangladeshs bowler Shahadat Hossain on the second day.

    Dravid has been kept in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Square Hospital in Dhaka under observation as a precautionary measure.

    "He is comparatively better than before," Fazlul Haq, the attending doctor in the hospital, told Cricinfo. "He will be here for a night and he is likely to be discharged tomorrow."

    Asked whether it was a fracture, Haq said: "It''s not exactly a fracture, more a sort of severe sprain. We are just keeping him here as a precaution." It was also learnt that Mostafa Kamal, the BCB president, and the Indian high commissioner had gone to the hospital to check on Dravid''s health.

    The incident occurred in the second over with the new ball, the 82nd of the innings, and with Dravid batting on 111 when he ducked into the bouncer. The ball didn''t climb as high as he thought it would and hit his ear guard as he tried to get his head out of the way.
