India wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant has been taken to the hospital for scans after he was hit on his left elbow while batting, the BCCI said on Saturday. Pant suffered the injury during his 36-run knock on Day 3 of the third Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He was replaced by Wriddhiman Saha behind stumps when the Indian team came out to field in Australia’s second innings. Pant was batting with confidence before he took a blow to his elbow by a short delivery from Pat Cummins. The wicketkeeper-batsman seemed to be in quite a lot of discomfort after being hit but continued to bat. However, despite all his efforts he didn’t carry on long as Josh Hazlewood got him caught at first slip by David Warner.
“Rishabh Pant was hit on the left elbow while batting in the second session on Saturday. He has been taken for scans,” the BCCI tweeted.
