Dharamsala: 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 of the 15 deliveries on Saturday, was struck over the head by a bouncer belonging to Lahiru Kumara during the chase through India in the fourth.
The wicketkeeper’s batter had his helmet off immediately after the impact before India’s medical team rushed to the field for the concussion test.
“Ishan Kishan was admitted to Fortis Hospital for a brain scan after being hit on the head by Lahiru Kumara’s bouncer,” a BCCI source told PTI.
“He stayed overnight in the hospital as a precaution.”
The BCCI is waiting for the scan result as Kishan is expected to be back at the team hotel.
However, there is a chance the Southpaw could be kitted out for the final game of the series here on Sunday.
In that case, Mayank Agarwal or Venkatesh Iyer can open the at bat alongside skipper Rohit Sharma.
Batters Ruturaj Gaikwad and Suryakumar Yadav and pacer Deepak Chahar are already out of the series with injuries.
India has already bagged the three-match T20 series, having won the first and second matches by seven wickets and 62 runs respectively.
