Kolkata: Dec 6, 2011

 

Bengal opener Rohan Banerjee was on Tuesday hospitalised after being hit in the lower abdominal region from a powerful flick from Tamil Nadu opener Abhinav Mukund.

 

When last reports came in, the left-handed opener is said to be in stable condition although he is yet to be discharged from the nursing home.

 

The incident happened in the seventh over when Banerjee fielding at short-leg was hit by Mukund shot off Shami Ahmed’s bowling. Banerjee was writhing in pain and collapsed to the ground. As there was a chair lying nearby, Banerjee’s teammates decided to carry him on a chair as he was rushed to the nearest nursing home.

 

Talking to reporters, after the day’s proceedings, CAB president Jagmohan Dalmiya informed that Banerjee was doing fine, though he was not sure of his availability tomorrow.

 

“He is fit now and is walking. I was in constant touch with the hospital authorities. We may see him in the match tomorrow, though it’s not for me to decide,” Dalmiya said adding that there was no delay in rushing the player to the hospital.

 

Asked why Banerjee was not carried off the ground on a stretcher, Dalmiya defended: “Stretcher was there at CAB’s disposal but the fielders opted for a chair as it was lying nearby. The ambulance was also at the parking and there was no delay at all.”

 

As per rules, Banerjee won’t be able to open the innings and may come in after the fall of fifth wicket. (PTI)
