SA v AUS: Australia handed World Cup injury scare as Cameron Green retires hurt after being hit by bouncer
Green came out to bat at No.4 for Australia in a run-chase of 223 after Rabada dismissed Mitchell Marsh caught behind in the sixth over of the innings. However, his stay at the crease was a short one as a sharp, rising bouncer by Rabada hit him on the side of the helmet two balls into his innings.
Green was pressing onto his front foot and got himself into a tangle. In the end, he had to take his eyes off the ball and ducked into it. The ball crashed into the left side of his helmet, causing the skin behind his ear to swell up and cut.
