Bangladesh become first team to have two concussion substitutes in same Test
The incident took place in the ongoing first day of the day-night Test against India at the Eden Gardens.
During Bangladesh’s first innings, both Nayeem Hasan and Liton Das were struck on the helmet resulting substitutes to be taken in their places. Both the batsmen were forced to be taken out of the field after getting hit in the head.
Since the inception of the rule of concussion substitute in Test cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC) earlier this year, five players served as concussion substitutes till to date.
According to the rule, the player who is to be replaced needs to be a like-for-like to the one substituted out and which is subjected to the approval of the match referee.
Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne was the first-ever concussion substitute as he had come in place of Steve Smith in the second Ashes Test earlier this year at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
They were bundled out scoring a paltry total of 106 runs.
