Barbadian batsman injured

Barbadian batsman Omar Phillips has reportedly been rushed to hospital in St Vincent after being struck in the head.

The incident occurred at the Arnos Vale cricket ground where the Barbados Pride are currently playing against the Windwards Volcanoes.

According to reports, Phillips was at the non-striker’s end when he was struck by a ball which was hit by the batsman on strike.

He was said to have dropped to the ground, where he remained unconscious for a period of time before emergency personnel rushed him to the hospital.

When Barbados TODAY contacted the player’s mom Joann just before 1PM, she said he had telephoned her a short while ago to say he was feeling better and that he was awaiting  a CT scan.

      Wishing the injured player a speedy recovery and a safe journey home. People here are known to see the worst, say the worst and believe the worst about things they know little or nothing about.
