Mumbai, Jan 14 (SocialNews.XYZ) India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant had a concussion while batting and could not keep wickets with K.L. Rahul filling in for him in the first ODI here on Tuesday.

"Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting. KL Rahul is keeping wickets in his absence. Pant is under observation at the moment," BCCI said in a statement.
