  • Jasprit Bumrah knocked down Cameron Green with a scorching drive in the warm up game.

  • Patrick Rowe replaced Green as concussion substitute for the remaining match.

Cameron Green, the young Australian all-rounder, was been ruled out of the remaining tour match against India A after taking a blow on the head while bowling.

Green was in his second spell of the day-night practice game at the SCG when tailender Jasprit Bumrah hit a scorching straight drive at the 21-year-old who was unable to react in time.

The ball moved in through Green’s hands and struck him on the right side of his head.

Mohammed Siraj, at the non-striker’s end, immediately dropped his bat and rushed towards Green for help.

The youngster was forced to sit on the pitch before being examined by the members of Australia A medical team. He then left the field for further assessment in the dressing room.

Here’s the video:

Later, Cricket Australia confirmed that Green has withdrawn from the remainder of the match, and right-handed batsman Patrick Rowe replaces him as a concussion substitute.

Meanwhile, India A batting unit – minus captain Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara – collapsed to 123/9 before some free-swinging from Bumrah and Siraj took their total to 194 in the first innings.
