Sampath Bandarupalli / 08 September 2014

West Indies wicketkeeper, Devon Thomas has been discharged from hospital after he suffered an accident on Thursday. Thomas lost control of his car during his drive and went off the road outside Pares Village in Antigua.

I was driving up the road, going at good speed,” he told the Daily Observer. “I tried to overtake and think I steered away a bit too hard and I slid across the road just above Pares. They (doctors) say they are going to check first and then they can adjust but at the moment I can’t say if I am going to be out of cricket and for how long.

Zorol Barthley, the Antigua & Barbuda Cricket Association president, said the injuries Thomas found weren’t life-threatening and hope for his quick recovery.

In this season, Thomas has 445 runs from six first-class matches and was the top scorer for his team, Leeward Islands. He had also turned out for Antigua Hawksbills in the Caribbean Premier League and last played in Internationals for West Indies in February 2013 against Australia in Down Under tour. He had played in 21 ODIs and three T20s, however, his record wasn’t much impressive.
