Nkrumah Bonner out of St Lucia Test with concussion

West Indies batter Nkrumah Bonner has been ruled out of the first Test against South Africa in St Lucia after being diagnosed with concussion. Kieran Powell will replace him under the concussion substitute rule.
Bonner top edged the very first ball he faced, off pacer Anrich Nortje, when he attempted to hook a short delivery but played the ball onto his helmet's badge. He appeared shaken and was checked for concussion on the field - while South Africa reviewed unsuccessfully for a possible catch - and allowed to continue. He faced 32 balls in all and scored 10 runs but did not take the field when West Indies arrived to bowl, midway through the second session.
Instead, Powell was on the field and will now also bat in Bonner's place. Powell has not played for West Indies since 2018 and was recalled for the series.
If was a big blow on a day of blows for West Indies, who were routed for 97 - the 19th time in Test cricket they've been bowled out below 100, and their lowest total against South Africa. Bonner, averaging 62.50 in his four Tests before this one, was one of only five players to face more than 30 balls in the innings.
