Ravindra Jadeja ruled of the final two games of India’s T20 series against Australia with concussion after controversy marred the opening clash in Canberra.
The all-rounder was hit on the helmet by a rising delivery from Mitchell Starc during his match-turning 44 not out on Friday evening.
He did not get immediate medical treatment but was examined at the innings break and replaced by substitute Yuzvendra Chahal, who then took three crucial wickets as India won by 11 runs.
The diagnosis was confirmed based on a clinical assessment in the dressing room during the innings break by the BCCI medical team, the Indian cricket board said in a statement.
He will not take any further part in the ongoing T20 series.
