Concussed Chris Rogers to slip first Test

Chris Rogers was run out after being evaluated by team doctor Peter Brukner

Australia opener Chris Rogers will miss the first Test against West Indies in Roseau from June 3 on account of a blackout he endured in the wake of getting hit in the nets on Sunday. Shaun Marsh seems liable to take his place.

Rogers batted quickly after the hit to the head protector, caused by a neighborhood net bowler, however pulled up sore on Monday morning and was discounted by the group specialist Peter Brukner.

Brukner tried Rogers at the group inn on Sunday evening and discovered proof of different blackout manifestations, for example, tipsiness; they had not reduced essentially enough by Monday morning. Rogers was educated of the choice by Brukner, the mentor Darren Lehmann and the chief Michael Clarke as preparing started on Monday at Windsor Park.

"He won't be coming back to preparing until he's completely recuperated," Brukner said. "He'll have an arrival to play prepare once he's without indication of a couple of days, slowly expanding his movement before he hits it up. It's probable he'll be accessible for the second Test however we won't realize that for a couple of days yet. I identifies with Darren and Michael and they were alright with it. I guaranteed Michael in the event that it was him or any other individual, we would be settling on literally the same choice.

"This is a high contrast decide now that in the event that somebody is concussed, they don't play. We used to accept blackout was a moderately irrelevant condition yet now all the confirmation demonstrates that we've got the opportunity to consider it a great deal more important. Cricket is like the football codes in that we're embracing that more genuine methodology."

Offspinner Nathan Lyon said any choices identifying with blackout or hits to the head had been taken out of the players' hands the preceding summer. "It's doubtlessly sad that is transpired, the doc's decided and the wellbeing and security of every player is key, so ideally Buck will discover his feet soon and he'll be back before you know it," Lyon said. "We had a discussion about it [concussion] the previous summer after Buck got hit [in Brisbane] and the doc just made the tenet that we don't have a say in it truly, so it’s up to the doc and our wellbeing and security is the doc's fundamental need, so we're guided by him."

The choice implied Marsh is situated to open close by David Warner in Roseau, having made a cleaned hundred in that position against a WICB President's XI in Australia's just warm-up apparatus, in North Sound.


It was the second time in the space of six months that Rogers had been hit on the head. He had endured a hit to the back of the head protector while handling at short leg amid the Brisbane Test against India in December. After that thump, which occurred just a matter of weeks after the passing of Phillip Hughes, Rogers looked emphatically irritated and admitted to quickly considering his future. He has subsequent to said the West Indies and England visits will be his last.
