The second T20I between West Indies women and Pakistan women’s team in Antigua saw an unpleasant incident unfold. Two West Indian players in Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation collapsed on the field within ten minutes of the start of the match. Fortunately, both players are stable now, but the reason for them succumbing to the ground is still unknown.
Chinelle Henry was the first to collapse on the ground, followed by Chedean Nation as both cricketers had to be stretchered off the field. But even under such circumstances, the fixture continued as West Indies emerged victorious narrowly by seven runs. West Indies took a 2-0 series lead with that triumph as they won the first game by ten runs.
Below is the clip of West Indies’ Chinelle Henry collapsing on the field:

Earlier, Kycia Knight top-scored with 30 for the West Indies as they batted first and managed 125 in 20 overs. Chedean Nation contributed 28 runs as well, while Fatima Sen was the pick of Pakistan’s bowlers. She ended with figures of 4-1-18-2, getting rid of Deandra Dottin and captain Stefanie Taylor.
In reply, Pakistan could not get going as Nida Dar’s 29 was the highest in the innings. Aside from Javeria Rauf, the other five batters perished to a run-out as Hayley Mathews was the only one amongst the wickets column. The Duckworth-Lewis method applied due to rains later meant that the tourists were seven runs short of the target.
