A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: Bishoo dropped from West Indies squad

Fudadin will make his West Indian debut against Australia in the third Test

 

West Indian leg-spinner, Devendra Bishoo, has been dropped from the national squad for the third Test against Australia.

Bishoo, claimed only one wicket in the first Test match, which Australia ended up winning by three wickets, and was the 12th man in the second Test, which ended up as a draw.

Middle order batsman, Kirk Edwards, has also been removed from the squad, due to a leg injury he has failed to recover from.

Assad Fudadin, who has been in top form for Guyana, has been called up as Edwards’ replacement, and will make his debut in the third Test.

Chairman of selectors, Clyde Butts, said: “Fudadin has been a member of the West Indies A team for a while now and we have seen signs of development and improvement.”

“This year he batted well in the regional four-day tournament, and made over 500 runs including two centuries. He was very consistent in the middle-order. He can also bowl medium pace and that is an asset,” he added.
