Injury grounds Windwards skipper

Jamaica Gleaner article.

Kingston, Jamaica - Windward Islands captain, Liam Sebastien, is still recovering from a head injury he sustained on Friday's first day of the WICB Four-Day Championship against Jamaica at Sabina Park.

The former West Indies Under-19 all-rounder picked up the injury after falling and hitting his head on the ground while completing a catch close to the long-on boundary. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies for further assessment.

"When I hit my head I did not know what was happening so the decision was taken for me to check it out," Sebastien said yesterday.

"At the UWI I did an x-ray and a CAT scan. The scan was clear but I am, however, feeling a bit of pain in my neck, and as such will be taking it day by day."

Sebastien, who had on a neck brace yesterday, was unsure whether he will take any further part in the four-day match. He did not bat in the Windwards' first innings.

"I don't know yet if I will bat in the match. It depends. Maybe if it is absolutely necessary," he said.
