Debutant Solozano struck on head while fielding

West Indies were dealt with a huge blow yesterday as debutant Jeremy Solozano got hit on the helmet while fielding at short leg on first session on Day 1 of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle.

Solozano the 26 year old debutant was hit on the front of the helmet near the forehead on the fourth ball of the 24th over when captain Dimuth Karunaratne pulled a short ball from Roston Chase. The batter had middled the ball and Solozano had barely any time to react or take evasive action.

Solozano went down on the ground immediately as his Windies teammates called out for the stretcher.

Medical staff examined the player before taking him off the field on the stretcher into a waiting ambulance which took him to a Galle hospital.

Solozano was conscious and responsive when he was being taken off the field, according to reports. Shai Hope came in as the substitute fielder after this incident.
