Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant on Tuesday suffered a concussion, forcing K L Rahul to take his position behind the stumps during the first ODI against Australia here.
"Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting. K L Rahul is keeping wickets in his absence. Pant is under observation at the moment," the BCCI said in a brief statement.
Pant made 28 off 33 balls during India's 255 all out after being sent in to bat by Australia.
Manish Pandey has come in as a replacement on the field for Pant.
An update on Pant is expected after the match.
