The Australia’s tour of the Caribbean is set to begin this week and the Australian opening batsmen Chris Rogers will have to sit out of the first test at Roseau after suffering a head injury on Sunday, reports suggested.

Cricket Australia issued a statement saying that the player suffered from a mild concussion, headache and dizziness after being hit on the helmet in the nets. He will not be a part of the first test and is set to be replaced by Shaun Marsh alongside David Warner who is in great nick.

Dr. Peter Brukner, the team doctor, conveyed his decision to rule the 37-year old out of the first test to the skipper Michael Clarke and the coach Darren Lehmann. He assured the skipper that it was the right decision and that the same would have been decided for any player in the situation. He also added that it is now the rule not to play a player who is injured or concussed in the head region.

Peter also said that the player will not be allowed to train till his symptoms subside which may take a few days. He said that the player is likely to be fit for the second test but also said that the call on his fitness will be taken just before the next test match.

Being recalled into the Australian team in 2011, Rogers has averaged 39.35 in 20 tests and has scored 1.535 runs for his team. He has already planned to retire after the Ashes series later in England and will want to enjoy every part of cricket that his left in his career.
