Rishabh Pant 'under observation' for concussion

Rishabh Pant has been diagnosed with concussion, resulting in his not being able to take the field for the second half of the first ODI against Australia in Mumbai. The 22-year old wicketkeeper was struck on the head by a bouncer from Mitchell Starc in the 44th over, a ricochet off the top edge which also resulted in his wicket.

“Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting,” a BCCI statement said. “KL Rahul is keeping wickets in his absence. Pant is under observation at the moment.”
