Kishan, who was called up as a replacement for the injured KL Rahul in India’s WTC final squad, encountered an unfortunate incident when he collided with his Mumbai Indians teammate, Chris Jordan.
The collision resulted in Kishan holding the left side of his forehead and subsequently leaving the field. He did not return to bat in Mumbai’s chase against Gujarat Titans. Vishnu Vinod was named as the concussion substitute for Kishan.

Meanwhile, Green, the Australian all-rounder, was struck on the left elbow by a sharp delivery from Hardik Pandya in the second over of Mumbai’s innings. Despite the blow, Green displayed resilience and joined the batting lineup in the sixth over after the fall of Tilak Verma.
Green’s all-round abilities are crucial to Australia’s prospects in the upcoming WTC final.
The injuries to Kishan and Green have raised concerns for both teams ahead of the highly anticipated World Test Championship final, scheduled to be held at The Oval in London from June 7. The status of their availability for the prestigious match remains uncertain, and both teams will closely monitor the players’ recovery in the coming days.
