Injured Rampaul replaced by Holder

ravi-rampaul-2011-2-6-2-40-0Fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, who sprained his ankle during West Indies’ opening game of the tri-series, has been left out of the squad for the second half of the tournament. He has been replaced by Jason Holder.ravi2

Rampaul had had a scan following West Indies’ win against Sri Lanka that revealed the extent of his injury, and subsequently did not play their second match, against India. Captain Dwayne Bravo had also missed that game, due to a groin strain, but his injury was not severe and he is likely to be fit for the remainder of the series.

Holder, who debuted for West Indies on their limited-overs tour of Australia earlier this year, was also part of their Champions Trophy squad but did not get a game in the tournament. He had impressed for Chennai Super Kings in the limited opportunities he was given in IPL 2013.

West Indies won both their games in the Jamaica-leg of the series, and will now travel to Port of Spain – where the remaining league games and the final will be played – as the current table-toppers.
