Women’s World Cup: Shamilia Connell discharged from hospital, confirms Cricket West Indies

West Indies fast bowler Shamilia Connell, who collapsed on the field during her Women’s ODI World Cup match against Bangladesh at Mount Maunganui, Bay Oval in New Zealand on Friday, is safe and has been discharged from hospital, Cricket West Indies (CWC) said. CWI) has confirmed.

Connell was bowling in the 47th over of the game, requiring 13 runs from 19 balls, with only one wicket left for Bangladesh at the time of the incident. She was immediately surrounded by concerned teammates, with medical staff running into the field to look after her.

After the game stopped for some time, the medical staff threw the fast bowler out of the field. Connell, who had no one for 15 in three overs, was later rushed to the hospital even as West Indies completed a thrilling four-run victory in the league game.

“Yes, he was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but he has been discharged. “We will officially update the media in the morning after getting an update from the team physio and our CMO,” Cricket West Indies CEO Johnny Grave told Cricbuzz on Friday evening (IST).

Earlier, West Indies captains Stephanie Taylor and Hayley Matthews also expressed their concern for Connell.

“It was sad to see him go down but let’s look at the bright side, maybe it was for us to regroup and we did that and changed the pace. Obviously it’s a little worrying to see him go down like this,” Taylor said during the post-match presentation.

Matthews, the top player of the match, scored 18 runs and took four wickets, adding, “She’s a fighter, I don’t know what’s wrong with her but she’ll be fine.”

Connell from Barbados has played 54 ODIs and 51 Twenty20 Internationals so far in his eight-year international career.
