Bangalore: Concussed India opener Gautam Gambhir is still suffering from the after-effects of the fall he took during The Oval Test, and has been advised complete rest for ten days along with medication that should help him recover faster.
Gambhir vomited even during the flight back to India, and has been told by the specialist that he shouldn't have stayed back for so long. "The doctors said if you are still dizzy and puking, these are clear symptoms of concussion," Gambhir told ESPNcricinfo.
During what was a wretched tour of England for him, a full-blooded sweep from Matt Prior hit him on the left elbow when he was fielding at forward short leg during the first Test. He couldn't open the second innings of that Test, and batted at No. 4 on the fifth day. There he batted for 70 minutes in India's unsuccessful attempt to draw the Lord's Test.
