West Indies is on the tour of Sri Lanka and today was the beginning of the first test match of the two test match series.

Jeremy Solozano was making his debut for the Men in Maroon and faced a really gruesome incident while fielding.

He was streched off the ground and immediately taken to the hospital to get him checked and to be provided with proper treatment as soon as possible.

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first. Nissanka and the Sri Lankan skipper Karunaratne came to open the innings for Sri Lanka.

The Horror at Debut

Jeremy Solozano was really excited to receive the cap for his debut test match for the Windies and the youngster is believed to be in possession of tons of calibre.

The 26 years old would have never thought that he will face such a gruesome incident on his debut.

The incident happened just before the lunch break on the opening day of the first of the two test.

In the 24th over, The Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne pulled a short ball from Roston Chase and it hit the debutant Jeremy Solozano right in the front of his helmet very near to his forehead.

Jeremy Solozano was immediately stretchered out and taken to the hospital.

Such incidents always leave the cricket fans and people on the field frightened.

They take us back to 2014, when the cricketing world lost a gem in form of Phillip Hughes after a ball hit him on his head.

There’s still more update to come on the Jeremy’s injury but hopefully we pray that he’ll be alright and back real soon.
