The unfortunate incident happened late in the first session on Sunday (November 21) in the 24th over. Roston Chase bowled a short delivery to the Sri Lankan captain, who struck a powerful pull shot straight at short leg where Solozano was positioned.
The 26-year-old from Trinadad was hit flush on his helmet grille with the rear part of the helmet coming off on impact.
Solozano lay still on the ground, surrounded by the players, as the physio tended to him. He was subsequently stretchered off the field by the medical staff and was taken to a hospital in an ambulance.
