On this occasion, Cricket <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Australia ">Australia </a>(CA) has initiated a new rule in the Big Bash League (BBL) Twenty20 and one-day competitions this season. The new rule will enable teams to swap a player who had to leave the field due to a head injury for medical attention. The move has gained attention from many and New South Wales (NSW) batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Nic-Maddinson">Nic Maddinson</a>, who was also hit on the head during the match acknowledged the rule as a great move. NSW opening batsman Daniel Hughes became a part of history by becoming the first player to be replaced in a match under CA s new concussion procedure. <p></p><p style="display: inline !important;">Maddinson was quoted in a report from <em>foxsports.com </em>saying, I think (concussion sub) is a great idea. You don t want to see people hit in the head and concussed. If there s the opportunity there players especially are pretty keen on the idea. </p> <p></p>Nick Larkin substituted Hughes in the One-Day Cup elimination final between New South Wales and Victoria on Friday after a bouncer from Peter Siddle hit his helmet at a great speed. Surprisingly, Larkin didn t confront a ball as his side won the contest by 31 runs after rains played the spoilsport. It s a good move by Cricket Australia as an injury to a player won t harm his team run in the game as another player can substitute him.
