Shakera Selman suffers injury during warm-up against India


Brisbane (Australia): West Indies’ Shakera Selman suffered an injury on Tuesday while taking a catch in the warm-up game against India at the Allan Border Field on Tuesday. Selman hurt her neck while fielding at the boundary line when she misjudged a catch hit by India opener Smriti Mandhana.

She has been taken to the city hospital for precautionary scans. The 30-year-old is one of West Indies’ most experienced bowlers, having featured in 76 T20Is and taken 41 wickets at 26.53.
