Both players said they didn’t have to face any hospitalisations or restrictions

Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation, the two West Indies Women players who collapsed on the field during their team’s second T20I against Pakistan Women, have recovered and are back with the team ahead of the third and final T20I.

Both players had collapsed on the field in separate incidents during the second T20I on Friday, but were back with the team on Sunday, the day of the third game.

In separate messages posted on Twitter, both said they didn’t have any hospital stay or restrictions imposed on them.

“I just want to thank you guys for all your concern and well wishes, and I am doing well. No hospital stay, no restrictions. Now I’m just focussed on going out there and getting the series 3-nil,” Henry said.

Nation also thanked all those who had expressed concern. “Just want to say thank you guys for the love and support I’ve received over the past 48 hours. No hospital stay, no restrictions, just eager and ready to get out there and hit some sixes.”

Both incidents had taken place during Pakistan’s chase, which was also beset by weather interruptions. West Indies eventually won by 7 runs via the DLS method, as Pakistan fell short of an 18-over target of 111. West Indies had also won the first T20I, by 10 runs after scoring 136 for 6 and restricting Pakistan to 126 for 6, and thus have an unbeatable 2-0 lead heading into the last game.

Nation has batted at No.5 in both games, while Henry has come in at No.7. Nation has had a reasonable outing with the bat so far, making 14 off 13 and then 28 off 33. Henry was not out on a run-a-ball 4 in the first game, and made 1 off 2 in the second.
