The concussion rule was used in the first T20 series between India and Australia. There was confusion among some fans when Yuzvendra Chahal started bowling despite not being in the playing XI. He was roped in as the Concussion Substitute in place of Ravindra Jadeja.
Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja scored 44 off 23 balls in Canberra and returned unbeaten. Jadeja hit 5 fours and 1 six in his unbeaten innings. Australia won the toss in this match and decided to field first. The Indian team scored 161 for 7 wickets in 20 overs.

Jadeja was hit at the helm by Pacer Mitchell Starc’s second ball of the last over of the innings. Although he kept batting and returned unbeaten after the innings was over, Yuzvendra Chahal was included in Team India for bowling under his concussion rule. However, with this decision, Australian coach Justin Langer was also seen arguing with ICC referee David Boon.
What is concussion
Temporary unconsciousness or confusions and other signs of head injury
Such is the rule of ICC
From 1 August this year, the ICC recognized some new rules in cricket. Since then the Test Championship has also started. Now the new rule in cricket is that if a player gets a head or neck injury, then another player can be given a chance in his place. That is, your 12 or more players can also bat / bowl.

The player’s consciousness is tested
Usually the physio (that is, there should be a specialist doctor) examines the player after taking some basic things into consideration. He checks the player’s balance, and asks him if he is dizzy? Or vomiting? Along with this, he also checks the memory of the player, for which some questions are asked – such as the name of the city and some other questions. Also the player is given something to read. It is seen whether he was normal during all these processes. Only then a further decision is made. Overall, the player’s consciousness is tested correctly after an injury to his head.
Bowler comes in place of bowler
Under concussion rules, if a bowler is injured, a similar player can be replaced. Likewise, only a batsman can come to a concussion institution instead of batting. If an all-rounder comes, he can only bat.
