Windies' women cricketers Henry and Nation hospitalized after collapsing on field

West Indies pacer Chinelle Henry and batter Chedean Nation were rushed to the hospital after collapsing during the 2nd T20I against Pakistan

West Indies players Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation were rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the field in two separate incidents during the second T20I against Pakistan in Antigua.

Both the incidents happened during Pakistan's run chase, which also saw rain interruptions on Friday. Cricket West Indies said that both the players were stable.

"(Seam bowler) Chinelle Henry and (batter) Chedean Nation were taken to hospital for medical attention. Both Henry and Nation are conscious and stable at hospital and are being assessed," Cricket West Indies said in a statement.

West Indies brought on two substitutes and the game continued, with the home side eventually declared winners by seven runs on Duckworth-Lewis-Stern after another interruption.

"It isn't very easy in those conditions and situations. I'm just happy that the team was able to go over the line for those two ladies who weren't with us, and we're just waiting on all the information that we can get," West Indies head coach Courtney Walsh told ESPNCricinfo.

"They have our full support and we'll be riding with them as well."

Pakistan captain Javeria Khan wished the West Indies pair a quick recovery.

"The thoughts and prayers of the whole Pakistan team are with Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation," she said in a statement.

"We wish them a quick recovery and are hopeful that we will play against them in our next match on Sunday.

"Such incidents are tragic and can shake whole dressing rooms. Hats off to the West Indies that they turned up and completed the match despite the grave incident."
