The West Indies announced on Sunday that scans on debutant Jeremy Solozano, who was taken to hospital after being hit in the head while fielding in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle, revealed "no structural damage." When Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne pulled a short delivery from Roston Chase into the grill of the Windies opener's helmet, Solozano was fielding at short leg. At the Galle International Stadium, Solozano removed his helmet and lay down, surrounded by frightened teammates and both Sri Lankan batsmen, while the team's physio ran onto the field. The 26-year-old was brought to the hospital on a stretcher. In the first match of the two-Test series, Shai Hope came on as a substitute fielder.
