Rishabh Pant Ruled Out of Second ODI Due to Concussion

Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has been ruled out of the second ODI of India against Australia after being hit by a ball. 

Rishabh Pant has been struck on his head by a bouncer from Pat Cummins during the 44th over of India’s innings which also resulted in a wicket. The 22-year-old player didn’t take the field on the second innings of the game and was replaced by KL Rahul instead. 

Pant didn’t need any outright treatment on the field as he was able to walk on his own. However, he no longer joined the team on their team training in the break between the innings. During that break, KL Rahul was already seen to have put on the gloves to practice some wicketkeeping. 

He has already been ruled out of the upcoming second ODI. His availability for the third ODI is yet to be announced as his condition will be observed first. 

After the first ODI, Pant had been taken to the hospital for some overnight monitoring in which his scans proved that he is stable. He was immediately discharged from the hospital and was sent out to Bengaluru to undergo some rehabilitation. 

With India having no official substitute wicketkeeper, it seems like KL Rahul will take Pant’s place for the second and third ODI against Australia. 

The next ODI will be held on January 17 in Rajkot where the odds are yet to be posted so make sure to check it out on Betwala.
