Indian wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh suffered a concussion during the first T20I against South Africa. S. Sajana took the place of the young Indian star on the field.

After losing the ODI series in a 3-0 whitewash and the one-off Test by 10 wickets, the South Africa Women’s team finally got some relief with a 12-run victory over India Women in the first T20I of the series at Chepauk. 

Batting first, South Africa posted 189-4 in their 20 overs, with Tazmin Brits scoring 81 off 56 balls and Marizanne Kapp adding 57 runs.

In reply, India Women ended their innings at 177-4, with Jemimah Rodrigues fighting hard and scoring an unbeaten 53 off 30 balls but falling short of the target.

Richa Ghosh injured while attempting Brits' catch

Richa Ghosh, who was playing her 50th T20I, suffered an injury in the 16th over of the match. While attempting to catch a ball from Tazmin Brits, it rebounded off her gloves and struck her face. 

Richa Ghosh immediately left the field to receive medical attention from the physio. Uma Chetry briefly took over wicketkeeping duties as her substitute, but during the innings break, S. Sajana was officially named as the concussion substitute.

Tazmin Brits, who played a pivotal role in South Africa's victory with her match-winning innings, also faced an injury during the game. 

Initially suspected to be a cramp, the issue turned out to be more severe. Brits suffered a contusion in her right leg and was stretchered off the field in the second innings
