Sydney: All-rounder was struck on the side of the head by a fierce straight drive from on the opening day of the pink-all warm-up match at the SCG on Friday.

Bowling the 45th over of the innings, Green deflected a flat-batted return from Bumrah onto his head and was on his haunches immediately after that.
 
Mohammed Siraj, the non-striker, rushed to help Green who was examined by the medical staff and thankfully, looked better immediately. He even walked off the ground all by himself.


 
“Cameron sustained a mild concussion while bowling for Australia A against India at the SCG today,” CA Team Doctor Pip Inge said via a statement. “This is Cameron’s first concussion. He has returned to the team hotel and will not play the remaining two days of the tour match.
 
“We will continue to monitor him and provide an update on his condition in due course.”
 
Green’s blow follows the hit to the helmet suffered by Will Pucovski in the previous warm-up match at Drummoyne Oval which left him with mild concussion and in doubt for the opening Test on December 17.
 
Australia are already without David Warner for at least the Adelaide match due to his groin injury. (UNI)
