<strong>LONDON:</strong> In a warm gesture at Kennington Oval on Saturday, Australia opener <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/david-warner/news/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">David Warner</a> met the net bowler he <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-2019-australia-halt-net-session-after-bowler-hit-on-head-by-david-warner-853867" target="_blank" rel="noopener">felled during batting practice</a> at this same venue a week ago and gave him an autographed Australian cricket team jersey ahead of his team's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match versus Sri Lanka today. <p></p> <p></p>Indian-origin Jaykishan Plaha, while bowling to Warner on June 8 at Kennington Oval ahead of Australia's match against India, was hit by a firm drive from the left-hand batsman. He immediately fell to the ground, and Australia's practice session came to an abrupt halt. <p></p> <p></p>Plaha, a local Surrey league cricketer, received medical attention and was stretchered inside for further assessment. Though conscious, he was taken to a London hospital where he remained for a couple of days as doctors monitored him for delayed signs of concussion. A subsequent CT scan cleared Plaha of any major damage. <p></p> <p></p>[caption id="attachment_854018" align="alignnone" width="900"]<img class="size-full wp-image-854018" src="https://www.cricketcountry.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/David-Warner-nets-bowler-Oval.jpg" alt="david warner net bowler" width="900" height="667" /> Australia halted their practice session on June 8 after David Warner hit Jaykishan Plaha on the head with a powerful drive.
