Shai Hope replaces Jeremy Solozano as concussion substitute in Galle

West Indies have confirmed that Solozano has suffered a concussion

West Indies have confirmed that Shai Hope has replaced newcomer Jeremy Solozano as the concussion substitute in the ongoing first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle. Solozano, on Sunday, was handed his maiden international cap, but an unfortunate incident saw the debutant cop a heavy hit on his helmet while fielding at short-leg as he caught the full force of a Dimuth Karunaratne pull. The 26-year-old was stretchered off the field immediately, and took no further part in the day’s play.

West Indies have now confirmed that Solozano has suffered a concussion, and will thus be replaced by Shai Hope for the remainder of the Test.

“Jeremy Solozano has suffered a concussion. He will return to the team hotel today and begin undergoing the appropriate protocol. Shai Hope will replace Solozano in the ongoing Test match,” read a tweet from the official Windies cricket account.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, West Indies also confirmed that Solozano did not suffer a serious injury, and was stable. 

“Jeremy Solozano’s scans show no structural damage. He will be kept at the hospital overnight for observation,” Windies Cricket tweeted on Sunday.

Sri Lanka, after ending Day 1 on 267/3, headed to lunch on Day 2 at 341/6, having lost both the set batters Karunaratne and Dhananjaya de Silva.
