The 20-year-old, who was conscious, was taken to hospital.

An early and extended lunch was taken as a result of the incident.

The match was postponed for over an hour and a half, with play now resuming.

South Australia was 9/168 at lunch at Adelaide Oval, following Victoria's first innings score of 184 all out.
