West Indies leg-spinner Samuel Badree will miss the Big Bash League (BBL) due to a shoulder injury.
It has also been confirmed that Badree, who was set to play for the Brisbane Heat, will undergo surgery.
“It is very unfortunate for Samuel, who was looking forward to playing in the BBL with us and would have been an exciting player to watch for our fans,” Heat general manager Andrew Blucher said. “We wish him a speedy and successful recovery.”
Speaking about Badree, Heat head coach Stuart Law told News Corp: “It is a pretty clear case that we need a new-ball option, which we thought we had with Samuel. We are definitely now looking at Fred [Flintoff] playing in as many games as we can. The chances are he will now play 90% of our games, if not all of them. I would say he will play in our opening game, he is certainly fit and ready to play.”
