Australia Cricket Team have hit the nets to prepare for their next game against India on June 9 (Sunday) at the Kennington Oval in London. Meanwhile, during their practice session on the eve of the match, a net bowler had to hospitalised after he copped a blow on the head from a shot from David Warner.

The incident took place during the end of the second hour when Jai Kishan, a British fast bowler of Indian origin was hit on the head while trying to stop a David Warner shot. Kishan jumped in pain before collapsing on the ground as the medical staff rushed to the field to attain him. It was a fierce drive from Warner which struck on his head as the practice session came to a temporary halt.

David Warner seemed concerned with the young boy as he sat beside him to see the progress. To everyone’s relief, the player was responding as the entire Australian team stopped their session. The Australia Cricket Team’s medical staff combined with the local staff to take the boy to the local medical centre. Jai Kishan, before getting into the ambulance, said that he is doing fine despite a fierce blow on his head.

“I have got a hit on the head. I am doing fine. My name is Jai Kishan and I am a fast bowler,” the player said before being taken into the ambulance.

He would likely stay under observation for the next 24 hours as it is a head injury. The boy was taken to a nearby hospital from the Surrey Medical facility centre for precautionary measures. Meanwhile, Australia will be gearing to take the field on Sunday for an electrifying clash against Virat Kohli & Co. David Warner played a match-winning knock in the first game and will look to help his side get a good start against a quality Indian attack.
