Immediately after the incident, the house group brought on two substitutes, and the game continued.

The victory also inspired West Indies ladies to seal the series ahead of the third and final T20I. The final game will be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antiguan on Sunday (July four).
“It is not really straightforward in these situations and conditions. I’m just content that the group was in a position to go more than the line for these two ladies who weren’t with us, and we’re just waiting on all the facts that we can get. They have our complete assistance, and we’ll be riding with them as properly,” stated WI head coach Courtney Walsh as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
