Jamaican batsman Nkrumah Bonner has been ruled out of the remainder of the first test between the West Indies and South Africa after sustaining a concussion. The right-handed Bonner was struck on the helmet while batting in the Windies’ first innings on Thursday and passed the on-field concussion assessment. He subsequently underwent further medical assessments under the CWI concussion protocols when he came off the field. Following these medical examinations, he was diagnosed as having a concussion. He has been replaced by left-handed batsman Kieran Powell. ICC Match Referee Sir Richie Richardson approved West Indies request for Powell to come into the match as a concussion substitute.
