New South Wales Blues batsman ED Cowan has received a nasty blow to his head in their Sheffield  Shield match against Western Australia in  New Zealand.

Late on Friday’s third day, Cowan was unbeaten on two when he was struck by a nasty short ball from left-arm pacer Joel Paris.

The delivery took a brisk rise and appeared to strike Cowan on the badge of his helmet, and the left-handed fell backwards onto the turf before gradually regaining his feet.

Western Australia’s players lead by Paris immediately rushed in to check on Cowan’s welfare. The batsman accepted their concerns as he removed his helmet and walked away towards square leg to compose himself.

Clearly he was rattled, Cowan spent a few moments in the moments in the crouch in the crouch position  as he was assessed by Blues medical staff, including Dr Johan Orchard.

After around three minutes in the hands of the medical team, Cowan walked off the field and was replaced by night watchman Nathan Lyon.

Just a few minutes later, both teams walked off the ground due to bad light with the Blues 1-11 in their second innings.
