Sydney: Struggling Australia batsman Adam Voges (37) suffered concussion after he was struck on the helmet by a bouncer yesterday, ruling him out of a domestic game and dealing a blow to his Test chances.

Voges needed runs in Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield clash with Tasmania in Perth to salvage his Test spot.
But the sickening impact from a Cameron Stevenson bouncer saw him sink to the ground before gingerly walking off minutes later, with each arm wrapped around the shoulder of medical staff.

“Voges has been diagnosed with concussion. He is ok, naturally a bit groggy. Being monitored by medicos. Ruled out of rest of game,” the Western Australian Cricket Association tweeted.

The scare came just weeks after an inquest into the death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, who died from bleeding on the brain in November 2014 after being hit on the neck by a rising ball during a domestic match in Sydney.
