Sydney Cricket Test: Rishabh Pant taken for scanning after getting injured on left arm
Rishabh Pant, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman was hit on the arm while batting in the third Test match in Sydney by a Pat Cummins bouncer and is taken for scanning.
The BCCI confirmed at the end of India’s innings on Saturday that Pant was taken for scans. Wriddhiman Saha came in to keep for India for Australia’s second innings due to Pant’s injury.
Pant seemed to be in pain after the incident took place, but continued to bat and hit a couple of more runs before edging a delivery from Josh Hazlewood to David Warner in the first slip. He scored 36 runs of 67 balls and stitched together an important 53-run partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara.
The trouble for India started immediately after Rishabh Pant was dismissed with the Indian scoreboard on 195/4. Pujara got out in the following over, and Indian middle-order collapsed within a span of 21 runs to go to 216/9. India were eventually all-out for 244 in response to Australia’s first innings score of 338, giving the hosts a 94-run lead.
