Lucknow Super Giants' batter Devdutt Padikkal copped a lethal blow from a short-pitched delivery from Rajasthan Royals seamer Trent Boult as a part of his helmet came off. The video of the same went viral on social media as the team doctor came out running to run a concussion check on the left-hander.

The incident occurred in the 3rd over of the innings as Boult was breathing fire, having dismissed the dangerous Quinton de Kock. The short-pitched delivery from the New Zealand seamer went short. The left-handed batter looked to pull it, but missed the ball, resulting in a blow to his head as part of the helmet came off. One of his teammates had to come out with a new helmet.

However, Boult left the youngster confused as his full-length delivery breached through Padikkal's defences to hit the middle stump. The Karntaka batter had to depart for a three-ball duck, as a result.

Sanju Samson's 82 powers the Rajasthan Royals to 193-4 in 20 overs:

Meanwhile, the Royals delivered a good batting performance after winning an important toss. The partnership of 93 between Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag formed the bedrock of the steep total before the latter fell for 43 off 29 deliveries.

Samson, meanwhile, stayed until the end and was unbeaten at 82 off 54 deliveries. Dhruv Jurel also added some crucial runs to drive their side above 190.
