Sydney: India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has been taken for scans after he was hit on the right elbow by Pat Cummins on day three of the ongoing third Test at SCG on Saturday.

He was, however, replaced by Wriddhiman Saha as the rules allow a wicketkeeper to be replaced by a fellow wicketkeeper in case of an injury.
Pant was criticised for his wicketkeeping during the first innings as he dropped debutant Will Pucovski a couple of times and leaked a few runs as well.
India would be hoping for four to five wickets by the end of day three to stay alive in the Test. It would be interesting to see how Australia approach the second essay with a lead of 94.
