Shai Hope comes in as the like-for-like replacement for Solozano in Galle
West Indies have picked Shai Hope as the concussion substitute for debutant Jeremy Solozano, who will play no further part in this Test. The substitute was confirmed after being approved by the match referee Ranjan Madugalle.
West Indies have had to bring Hope in because Solozano was injured on Day 1 after being hit flush in the helmet grille off a Dimuth Karunaratne pull shot while fielding at forward short leg on Day 1 in Galle. Solozano remained unmoved for a few moments and needed to be stretchered off the field and soon rushed to a hospital.
The update from the evening on Day 1 was that the scans showed there was ‘no structural damage' but he needed to be kept under observation.
