Sneh Rana

Indian all-rounder Sneh Rana was subjected to tests after she “complained of headaches” following her collision with Pooja Vastrakar on the field during the second ODI against Australia at the Wankhede Stadium, the BCCI said. Former Indian captain Anjum Chopra, a commentator for the match, said Rana also complained of nausea.

Harleen Deol

Rana will no longer participate in the match. Harleen Deol was named as her replacement after a concussion.

“She [Rana] I had a bit of a headache after the first innings,” Indian head coach Amol Muzumdar said after the match*. “We thought it was appropriate that she did the scan. The intercourse went well and she is back in the locker room. She still has a little headache, but that’s normal. She is available for the third match.”

The incident occurred in the 25th of the first innings. Trying to stop a cut from left hitter Beth Mooney, Rana moved to her left from third court and Vastrakar to her right from back point. In the process, Rana’s head hit Vastrakar and both players fell to the ground. Rana was immediately taken off the field, with the physio applying ice to her head, but she returned after a few overs.

Rana, who had bowled four overs at the time of the collision, continued to complete his quota of ten overs. She dismissed Ashleigh Gardner in the 37th over and finished with figures of 1 for 59.

Rana was the player of the match for her seven wickets in the one-off Test played between the two teams last week. In the first ODI India lost, she dismissed Australian opener Phoebe Litchfield.

Deol, who bowls but is primarily a hitter, was seen as an equal replacement for Rana, who is primarily an off-spinner and a lower-order hitter. Deol’s last ODI outing came against Bangladesh in Mirpur in July, when she scored 77 runs in a drawn match and was named Player of the Match.
