In the second over of the day’s play, Rogers signalled to the dressing room that his head his spinning, but he fall on the pitch with David Warner by his side before the team physiotherapist Alex Kountours and doctor Peter Brukner rush to him.

Cricket Australia said, “Rogers condition will continue to be monitored, while he is unlikely to be required to bat again in Australia’s second innings.”

Rogers has suffered a nasty blow on the head to a James Anderson bouncer on the first ball of the day two, but carried on before fell on his highest Test innings 173.

 

This not the first time the red ball struck on Rogers head, last month during Australia’s tour of West Indies Rogers was ruled out of the two Test series after suffering symptoms of concussion from a blow to the helmet by a net bowler in Dominica. Earlier in Sheffield Shield Rogers was hit on the head while fielding at short leg last year.

“I’ve been hit in the head plenty of times and never really had that,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia. We do have to be a little bit concerned about it. You have to look after yourself with head injuries.” Rogers added.
