India vs Australia A: Another concussion scare for Australia as Cameron Green struck on head | Cricket News



SYDNEY: Test hopeful Cameron Green was struck on the head in a tour game against India on Friday as Australia’s preparations for the four-Test series against the tourists suffered another jolt at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The 21-year-old all-rounder was bowling to Jasprit Bumrah, who smashed a drive straight through Green’s fingers and struck him on the right side of the head.
Green was attended to by the medical team and was able to walk off the field.
“An update on his condition is expected later this evening,” the Cricket Australia website said.
Green is the second Australia Test squad member to suffer a head knock during a warm-up match against India. Opener Will Pucovski retired hurt in Australia A’s tour match on Tuesday after being hit on the helmet by a bouncer.



Bumrah’s highest first-class score of 55 helped the tourists to 194 all out on the first day one of the day-night match, with India resting skipper Virat Kohli and top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara.
The first Test begins at Adelaide on Thursday.
