Mumbai: India Blue’s left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha got hit on the head by a pink ball while fielding at the mid-on area in the Duleep Trophy match on Wednesday.
It took place in the 63rd over of India Blue’s second innings. India Blue’s right-arm medium pacer Pankaj Singh played a cross-batted shot and the ball hit Ojha straight at mid-on. He immediately collapsed on the ground as the other players surrounded him.
He was however taken to hospital and MRI and CT Scan were done on him. While the results are awaited, BCCI sources confirmed that the left-arm spinner was in stable condition and any concussion is unlikely.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) later even tweeted a picture of Ojha, saying- “Pragyan Ojha is doing fine. His health will be monitored”.
Ojha went wicket-less in the first innings and changed the face of the match by taking three in the second, of India Blue which ended at 288 in 66.2 overs, setting the Green team an improbable 769-run target on fourth and final day of the game.
India Blue’s stands at the apex with a score of 707 in the first innings, whereas India Green has a humble score of 237.
