Two West Indies women cricketers, Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation, collapsed on the field within a span of 10 minutes during the second T20I against Pakistan in Antigua on Friday.

In worrying scenes, Henry was the first to collapse as her colleagues rushed towards her. Quite shockingly, Nation too fell down moments later. Both the players were immediately stretchered out.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) issued a statement and said that both are “conscious and stable”. However, the cause behind the incident is still not clear.

“Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation were taken to hospital for medical attention. Both Henry and Nation are conscious and stable at the hospital and are being assessed,” CWI was quoted as saying in a statement, ESPN reported.

Surprisingly, the match was not forfeited and hosts Windies went to win by seven runs (D/L).

Meanwhile, it was West Indies who proved to be too strong with the bat as they registered a seven-run victory via the DLS method in the second T20I at Coolidge Cricket Ground.
