Pant out of ODI team due to head injury

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been ruled out of 2nd ODI between India and Australia in Rajkot. Pant had suffered a concussion after getting hit on the helmet in the opening game of the series in Mumbai.

Team India reached Rajkot for the 2nd ODI on Wednesday, however, Pant, who was supposed to join the team later, will now travel Bengaluru for rehabilitation.
During India innings on Tuesday, Pant got hit on the helmet off pacer Pat Cummins's bouncer, which also led to his dismissal for 28 in the 44th over of India's innings. Pant had to seek treatment during the innings break and was kept out of the remaining match due to concussion.

"He (Pant) is ruled out of the 2nd ODI. His availability for the final ODI will be based on how he responds during the rehabilitation protocol," BCCI said in a statement.
