Henry dived in to stop the ball but hit her head on the advertising board
West Indian cricketer Chinelle Henry was dropped from the remaining matches of the ODI series against India Women’s Cricket Team. She suffered a concussion during the first ODI. Henry was chasing the ball when she dived in and hit her head against the advertising board in the field.
She was later replaced by a concussion substitute. Following her injury, according to the press release issued by Cricket Wicket Indies (CWI), she will be absent for seven days as her recovery will be monitored.
Meanwhile, Caneisha Isaac was called up to replace Britney Cooper. She sustained a bruised shin after being struck with a ball.
‘Isaac is a young medium pacer and a live wire on the field who impressed during the recent pre-series camp. She will join the group of young medium pacers being groomed in the thrust to continue the development of young players’, said Ann Browne-John, the lead selector for Women’s and Girls.
The next ODI match will be held on November 6 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. India (-434.78) has the best odds to win against the West Indies (+340). Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
