Mumbai, June 11 : We have seen many accidents on the cricket field. The same thing happened in the first Test between South Africa and the West Indies (WI VS SA). West Indies top-order batsman Nkrumah Bonner was injured on the first day of the match and has been ruled out of the Test. South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje’s fast bowler hit Encrumah’s helmet, after which he began to feel dizzy and had a headache. Bonner did not return to fielding after the West Indies innings, after which he will not play in the rest of the match. Bonner has been replaced by Kieran Powell as Connection Substitute.
The incident happened in the 12th over with Encrumah Bonner. Bonner Shy Hope took the field after the wicket was gone and Norkia threw the first ball bouncer. The Norwegian ball hit Bonner’s head at a speed of 143 km per hour. Bonner immediately took off his helmet and felt dizzy, but he remained on the field, after which he played 31 balls. Bonner was dismissed for 10 by Rabada.
When Bonner went to the pavilion after being out, he started having headaches, so the West Indies did not field him. Kieran Powell was substituted for the connection. Powell will also bat in the next innings. The ICC has made a new rule to give connection substitution if the ball hits the player’s head on the field.
West Indies were bowled out for 97 in just 40.5 overs in the first innings of the match. West Indies’ 6 batsmen could not even reach double figures. South Africa’s fast bowler Lungi Engidi took 5 for 19, while Norkia took 4 wickets.
