Former West Indies batsman Omar Phillips has suffered no brain damage after being struck at the back of the head on Friday.

The 28-year-old was at the non-striker's end when Shai Hope's shot hit him on the head during a Professional Cricket League match between the Barbados Pride and the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Arnos Vale.

Phillips became unconscious on the field before a doctor rushed to the scene. He was then taken to hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by the team physio.

The left-handed opening batsman's scan result is negative and does not indicate any head injuries.

A statement on West cricket's official website read: "The Barbados Pride are breathing a collective sigh of relief today."

"That's because a CT scan done on the brain of Barbadian opening batsman Omar Phillips yesterday came up negative for any damage, after he was struck at the back of the head and rendered unconscious while representing his country."

"Phillips, 28, was at the crease in the West Indies Cricket Board's Professional Cricket League match between the Pride and the Windward Islands Volcanoes at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex when he was injured," it added.

The Phillips incident came just over a week after Australian batsman Phil Hughes died after he was hit by a bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match between South Australia and New South Wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
