Usman Khawaja’s Return to Gabba in 2023-24 Series Against WI in Doubt after Adelaide Head Injury

1 min read

Usman Khawaja remains on course to play in the second Test against West Indies in Brisbane after passing his concussion protocols. He was hit on the helmet by a short ball and retired hurt, but has shown no symptoms. Khawaja is due to return to training on Tuesday during Australia’s main session. The team is likely to remain unchanged for the second Test, with Matt Renshaw as the spare batter. The three frontline quicks are set to play their fifth Test of the season together, alongside Nathan Lyon. Australia’s attack is the first in history where all four bowlers have taken over 250 Test wickets. With two Tests against New Zealand coming up, the quicks are being rested from the ODI series against West Indies. Scott Boland and Lance Morris could be called up if needed. Morris is in line for his ODI debut against West Indies and is likely to be included in the Test squad to tour New Zealand.
