Australian player Adam Voges has suffered a concussion after a hit to his head and has been ruled out for the remainder of Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania. A short delivery from Cameron Stevenson hit Voges on his helmet while he batting on 16.

As per The Guardian, Voges was struck on the helmet when he tried to turn away and avoid a Cameron Stevenson bouncer shortly before lunch on day one. Voges was looking to secure a spot in the Australian batting order for the forthcoming third Test in Adelaide.

After the hit, Voges fell flat on the ground for some time before being helped off the field by the support staff. He was taken to the medical, and as confirmed from the tweet by the Western Australian Cricket Association, he has been diagnosed with a concussion. 

This is the second time in this year, Voges has suffered from concussion. Earlier, he got a freak head injury while playing county cricket for Middlesex. Voges was fielding at the slips when he was hit on the back of the head by a ball that was thrown back towards the wicketkeeper after a boundary.

Chahal or Axar? Who will take more wickets for India?
