West Indies received a mighty scare when debutant Jeremy Solozano was taken off the field on a stretcher after he was hit on the helmet while fielding at a short leg. The incident occurred in the ongoing first Test between Sri Lanka and West Indies when Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne pulled a short ball from Roston Chase which hit Solonzano straight on the helmet.

The southpaw middled the ball which left Solozano with little time to react. The 26-year-old fell on the ground, leaving players concerned. The medical staff rushed on the field and attended him before carrying him on a stretcher. Solozano was then taken for scans to know if he had suffered any serious injury. As per the scan report, Solozano is fine and there is no international damage. However, the opener will stay in observation as a precautionary measure.



Earlier in the day, the youngster was handed his debut cap by Simmons. The Trinidad player, who has played 40 plus first-class matches, was set to open for West Indies. Solozano was selected in the team by the Roger Harper-led selection panel due to his application, patience, and composure at the domestic level.

Speaking about the game, Sri Lanka find themselves in a commanding position at 267-3 at stumps on Day 1. Dimuth Karunaratne is batting on 132 along with Dhananjaya de Silva, who is unbeaten on 56. Earlier, Pathum Nissanka also made 56. Oshada Fernando and Angelo Matthews failed to make an impact and were dismissed cheaply.
