While India won the second T20I against Sri Lanka on Saturday, India youngster Ishan Kishan has sustained a head injury and was rushed to a hospital in Kangra, Himachal Pradesh as well. While opening the innings for Team India,  Kishan was hit on the helmet when Sri Lankan pace bowler Lahiru Kumara bowled a deadly bouncer during the Powerplay as well.

While batting on 14 off 11 balls, Ishan Kishan received a mandatory concussion check from the Indian physios after the bouncer struck him on the helmet. Although he handled the hit on the helmet before the end of the third over in the first Powerplay, he couldn’t contribute much. Apart from Ishan Kishan, Sri Lanka batter Dinesh Chandimal has also sustained a thumb injury while fielding in the match and he was also taken to the hospital.

“I have been attached to the Indian team and I got information that an Indian player, who has sustained a head injury, has been brought in the hospital. His CT scan was conducted and he has been under observation,” said Dr Shubham.

“A Sri Lankan player has also been admitted in the hospital, after receiving a thumb injury in the second T20I. We are monitoring everything right now,” he further added.

As far as the second T20I is concerned, Shreyas Iyer smashed a fifty before Ravindra Jadeja smacked 45 in 18 balls to help India defeat Sri Lanka by seven wickets on Saturday. With this win, India also sealed the T20I series (2-0) with one game in hand. The third T20I between both sides will take place on Sunday.

However, Ishan Kishan has been discharged from the hospital, as per the news of Dainik Jagran. But, he is unlikely to feature in tonight’s T20i against Sri Lanka.

Rohit Sharma, after the win, said, “Yeah, it was something that was important, for the middle-order to come and string together a partnership was good to see. It’s happened quite a few times over the past few games. Don’t want to be too harsh on the bowlers, these things happen. We bowled well in the first few overs (in the batting powerplay), restricted them well, 80 runs in the last five overs, it’s something we need to understand on things to be done in the last five overs, but we did well in the first 15 overs. The pitch was superb, the ball was coming on nicely and these things do happen.”
