Australian batsman Usman Khawaja could feature in second test against the West Indies

Australian batsman Usman Khawaja remains on course to play in the second test against the West Indies in Brisbane tomorrow, after he continued to pass his concussion protocols following the blow to the head shortly before the end of the first test last week in Adelaide. 

Khawaja was struck on the side of helmet by a short ball from Shamar Joseph and retired hurt with one run needed for victory. 

He passed the initial concussion assessment in the dressing room and has continued to not show any symptoms over the weekend.

The batsman is now due to return to the Australian training squad today which will be the Aussies main session ahead of the Gabba test.

Khawaja’s progress, meanwhile means Australia’s line is likely to remain unchanged for the second test as they look to wrap up the series 2-nil.
