BARBADOS’ OPENING BATSMAN Omar Phillips is currently in a hospital in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Phillips, 27, was at the non-striker’s end when he was struck at the back of the head by a ball hit by teammate Shai Hope, during the West Indies Cricket Board’s Professional Cricket League match between the Barbados Pride and the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Arnos Vale today.
Phillips lay unconscious on the field for a few minutes before being treated by a doctor on the scene. He was then transported to the hospital by ambulance, and was accompanied by the team’s physio, Jackie King.
A couple hours later, the Barbados Pride were informed that he had regained consciousness, and would remain under observation. (BA)
