Jamaica Tallawahs batsman Andre Russell is floored by a short ball from St Lucia Zouks’ Hardus Viljoen

Andre Russell was stretchered off the ground by medical staff after a blow to his helmet in the first innings of Jamaica Tallawahs' clash against St Lucia Zouks at Sabina Park on Thursday. It appeared that there was no neck guard on Russell's helmet.

While Russell got up by himself, he had to leave the field on a stretcher.

His head turned due to the momentum of his failed pull-shot as he went blind to the ball.

He was then off the ground on a stretcher and a CT scan took place later in the evening. The Zouks fielder came rushing towards him and removed his helmet to check for any injury. However, when the medical team arrived to check Russell's condition, the right-hander was able to stand up on his feet.

Russell was taken to the hospital and given the all-clear after a scan.

Later on, an update from the franchise confirmed that Russell was in no such danger as the injury was not a serious one. Despite the confirmation, it has also been learnt that the all-rounder has been ruled out for the remaining part of this year's CPL.

Tallawahs head coach Donovan Miller said that there wasn't any fresh update on Andre Russell's injury as of now. After St Lucia captain Darren Sammy won the toss and sent the hosts in to bat, Tallawahs scored 170/5 in their allotted quota of 20 overs on the back of wicket-keeper batsman Glenn Phillips' 58 (34) with the help of eight fours and a six.
