Australian Test batsman Adam Voges cops sickening blow to the head

Adam Voges has been ruled out of the rest of Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania with concussion after being hit in the head by a bouncer.

Voges retired 16 not out after he was hit on the helmet by Tasmanian quick Cameron Stevenson on day one of the clash at the WACA.

He was struck on the helmet when he tried to turn away and avoid a Stevenson bouncer shortly before lunch on day one.

He dropped to his arms and knees, before being carried off the field by two trainers after receiving some medical treatment.

“Voges has been diagnosed with concussion. He is ok, naturally a bit groggy. Being monitored by medicos. Ruled out of rest of game,” the WACA said on social media.

Taking to the crease in front of interim national chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns, Voges, 37, had been fighting to save his Test career after a modest tour of Sri Lanka and four failures against South Africa.

The Australian team for the third Test against the Proteas will be selected on Sunday night. Already under immense pressure to save his spot, being ruled out of the rest of the Shield clash will make it difficult for selectors to justify handing Voges what would be his 21st Test.

His average has dropped from 95 at the end of the tour of New Zealand in February to 61 after his duck and two in a dismal Hobart Test against the Proteas.

It’s the second serious concussion Voges has suffered this year. He also took a serious knock to the head during the English county season.

In an interview with Fairfax Media, he revealed he was left feeling as if he had a “hangover” for more than a week after a freak head injury while captaining Middlesex in May.

The Australian middle-order batsman was hit on the back of the head after a throw by substitute fieldsman Ollie Rayner at third man missed wicketkeeper John Simpson and sconned Voges at slip during a clash against Hampshire. Voges was hospitalised briefly but said he did not recover for 10 days. JUST IN: Adam Voges has been hit on the helmet by a bouncer at the WACA. He has been taken off the field by medicos. #9Newspic.twitter苏州美甲美睫培训学校/diNxyAK0Af— Nine News Sydney (@9NewsSyd) November 17, 2016This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on 苏州美甲美睫培训学校.
