The Australian opening batsman was visibly left in state of shock his power shot hit a net bowler on head who was later taken to hospital.

The incident happened as Australia are preparing for the all important clash against India on Sunday.

As reported by cricket. Com.au , the young medium pacer, who was among a handful of net bowlers helping the Aussies prepare for their third match of the World Cup, was bowling to Warner at The Oval’s nets on Saturday and was struck in the head by a powerful drive.

Australia’s training session was delayed for around 20 minutes as the team’s medical staff and paramedics attended to the bowler on the pitch.

An International Cricket Council spokesperson confirmed that he had been concussed, but was conscious when he was stretchered off the ground and taken to hospital as a precaution.

Warner eventually continued batting but was rattled by the incident, according to captain Aaron Finch, who had been batting in an adjoining net at the time.

“Dave was pretty shaken up,” Finch was quoted by website. “The young guy seems to be in pretty good spirits at the moment, he’s obviously been taken to hospital and will continue to be assessed just to make sure everything is okay.

“It was a decent hit to the head. Hopefully everything keeps going well for the youngster and is back up and running shortly.

“It was tough to watch.”
