Pakistan's Javeria Khan has been released from hospital after being hit on the jaw during Wednesday's Women's World Twenty20 defeat by West Indies.

The opener was struck on the hand by a bouncer from Shamilia Connell that then hit the grille of her helmet, and she was carried off on a stretcher.

The 27-year-old was discharged from hospital with a broken thumb and is awaiting further medical reports.

Pakistan have replaced her with 21-year-old right-hander Ayesha Zafar.

"We were really shocked by the incident," said West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor.

"We have now been told she is fine, and that gives us relief."
