Chinelle Henry ruled out of India ODIs with concussion

Chinelle Henry has been ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series against India after suffering a concussion that makes her unavailable for a minimum of seven days, according to Cricket West Indies. Britney Cooper will also miss the last two ODIs with a bruised shin after being struck by a ball.
Henry, who put in a dive to stop the ball on the edge of the boundary in the first ODI, hit her head against the advertising board and was immediately taken off the field. She was replaced by Shabika Gajnabi, who became the first concussion substitute in women's cricket.
Meanwhile, Caneisha Isaac, an uncapped pacer, has been called up to the squad while Hayley Matthews returns to the team, having served an eight-match suspension for a code of conduct breach. Mathews has been out of international action since June this year.
"Isaac is a young medium pacer and a live wire on the field who impressed during the recent pre series camp. She will join the group of young medium pacers being groomed in the thrust to continue the development of young players," said Ann Browne-John, the lead selector for Women's and Girls.
West Indies lead the ODI series 1-0, having secured a narrow one-run victory in the first game in Antigua. The second and the third games will also be held at the same venue. This is followed by a five-match T20I series - the first to games to be played in St. Lucia and the remaining three in Guyana.
