Dharamsala, February 27 (SO News/Agency) After suffering a head injury in the second T-20 international match against Sri Lanka in Dharamsala, Indian wicketkeeper and batsman Ishan Kishan was advised by the team’s medical staff. He was taken for a CT scan as a precaution. Later, he has been kept under observation in a hospital in Kangra.
The incident took place in the fourth over of the Indian innings when Kishan was hit by Lahiro Kumara’s bouncer and the ball hit his helmet. After this injury, the Sri Lankan players immediately went to Kishan and started asking about his condition. Kishan played three more balls after the injury and was dismissed for 16 off 15 balls.
If Kishan is ruled out of Sunday’s final T20I, which seems likely given the gap of just one day between matches, India will have Sanju Samson for wicketkeeping and Mayank Agarwal to open the batting. can bring Mayank was included in the Indian team after Rituraj Gaikwad was injured. Agarwal was in quarantine in Chandigarh, four hours from Dharamsala, along with members of the Indian Test team.
India registered an unassailable 2-0 lead in the T20I series with a seven-wicket win on Saturday. It was India’s 11th T20 win in a row after losing to Pakistan and New Zealand in last year’s T20 World Cup.
