Australia opening batsman David Warner gifted a signed jersey to Indian-origin netbowler Jaykishan Plaha before the start of the clash against Sri Lanka at Oval in London. Plaha was injured after a shot from Warner struck him on the head during a net session on June 8, reports

The English bowler had collapsed on the ground, and was later rushed to the hospital. Warner kept sitting by his side and had taken no further part in the training session, till he was taken in the ambulance.

After the incident, Aussie skipper Aaron Finch explained the impact the incident had on Warner: “Yeah, Dave was obviously pretty shaken up. It was a decent hit to the head. It was tough to watch. It’s quite rare that somebody gets hit, it’s really unfortunate. Our own medical staff and the paramedics on the ground did a great job.

Australia have won three of their four games at the World Cup so far - with their only loss coming off against India last week.
