India allrounder Ravindra Jadeja, who had been substituted out of the first T20I against Australia against Canberra, has been ruled out of the next two T20Is in Sydney after sustaining a concussion.

“The diagnosis was confirmed based on a clinical assessment in the dressing room during the innings break by the BCCI Medical Team,” the BCCI said in a statement. Jadeja remains under observation and will be taken for further scans if required based on the assessment on Saturday morning.

Seamer Shardul Thakur, who wasn’t originally in the T20I squad, has been added to the group as Jadeja’s replacement.
