Australian cricket star Usman Khawaja was rushed to the hospital after a ball hit him in the face during a World Cup warm-up match.
The 32-year-old batsman beat Andre Russell's reward on Wednesday during Australia's seven-wicket win over the West Indians in Southampton, England.
Opener Khawaja had to retreat after being hit by the ball, which ran a length and caught him under the grill on his helmet, only two overs in the game.

Khawaja, who stood at five points, immediately walked a few meters from the wicket and bowed his head.
He was quickly surrounded by his former Sydney Thunder teammate Russell and West Indian field players before being started by team doctor Richard Saw.
Khawaja was then taken to the hospital for precautionary scans that showed no serious injury.
& # 39; It was very scary, & # 39; said batsman Shaun Marsh.
Marsh, who scored an unbeaten 55, rivals Khawaja as the starting place when Australia is confronted with Afghanistan on June 1.

& # 39; It faltered him on the cheekbone side … the most important thing is that he is OK and can bounce back fairly quickly, & # 39; said Marsh.
& # 39; He was a little shocked as you are when you are hit on the head, but he is a tough Uzzy cookie and he is ready to leave. & # 39;
Khawaja, who played the dominant role in the series of victories against India and Pakistan, preferred the order at David Warner.
Warner replaced Khawaja and scored 12 points, while former Australian captain Steve Smith scored half a century.
