Ishan Kishan hospitalised after being hit on head

India opener Ishan Kishan was admitted to a city hospital and underwent a brain scan after being struck on the head during the second T20I against Sri Lanka here. Kishan, who made 16 from 15 deliveries on Saturday, was hit on the head by a Lahiru Kumara bouncer in the fourth over during India's chase.

The wicketkeeper batter had removed his helmet immediately after the blow before India's medical team ran to the field for the concussion test. 'Ishan Kishan was admitted to Fortis Hospital for brain scan after being hit on the head by Lahiru Kumara bouncer,' a BCCI source said. 'He stayed overnight at the hospital as a precautionary measure.' The BCCI is awaiting the scan result as Kishan is expected to be back in the Team hotel.
