In a heartbreaking and scary incident, two Windies women cricketers fainted and collapsed on the field. The incident happened during the second Twenty20 International against Pakistan in Antigua on Friday.

Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation were involved in two separate incidents. While they were taken to the hospital, the match continued, which saw some rain interruptions, only for Windies to win the clash by seven wickets.

Nevertheless, the two are currently conscious and stable as they continue to stay in observation at the hospital. "(Seam bowler) Chinelle Henry and (batter) Chedean Nation were taken to hospital for medical attention. Both Henry and Nation are conscious and stable at hospital and are being assessed," said Cricket Windies in a statement.

Meanwhile, Pakistan skipper Javeria Khan wished them a speedy recovery before crediting the Windies side to pull off the win despite the scary situation. "They have our full support and we'll be riding with them as well. The thoughts and prayers of the whole Pakistan team are with Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation," she said in a statement.

"We wish them a quick recovery and are hopeful that we will play against them in our next match on Sunday. Such incidents are tragic and can shake whole dressing rooms. Hats off to the West Indies that they turned up and completed the match despite the grave incident," she added.

The incident comes weeks after Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field in a match against Finland during the ongoing UEFA Euro. He had reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest. While he is stable and recovering, Denmark has made it to the quarterfinals, taking on the Czech Republic on Saturday.
