Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim was taken to hospital after being struck on the head by a bouncer during the final day of the first Test against New Zealand in Wellington.

Mushfiqur, 28, had scored 13 in the second innings when he was hit on the helmet by a Tim Southee delivery.

He fell to his knees after the blow, and then appeared to collapse.

He was taken away in ambulance for X-rays but a team spokesperson later said he was fine.
