Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said that the Indian team was perfectly fit to take Ravindra Jadeja’s concussion option as symptoms related to head injury can show up to 24 hours after the ball is bowled. Sehwag is an expert on ‘Sony Six’, he said, ‘This decision was right from our side because Ravindra Jadeja was not fit to play and he could not bowl as well.’
Concussion can happen anytime
He said, ‘This was the opportunity that the Indian team got because they had a ball on their head and when a ball hits your head, no one can say that concussion will happen at the same time. It takes time. You can also get symptoms within 24 hours. That is why the Indian team took advantage of the rule properly.
The ball was hit by Steve Smith as well
Sehwag said, “When Steve Smith was hit on the head, Marnus Labushen came to bat in his place and he scored. Therefore, Australia also got this advantage. That is why I think Australia should not complain.

I got balls many times – Sehwag
He said, ‘Even if their logic is that Jadeja continued to bat and score runs, but when you remove your helmet inside the dressing room, you can see the swelling and you can get dizzy. It is likely. ‘Sehwag said,’ I have hit the ball on the helmet many times so I know what it looks like but in our time there was no such rule. ‘
