Jamaican pace bowler Andrew Richardson will replace the injured Ravi Rampaul in the Jamaica Tallawahs squad for the Caribbean Premier League, which starts on July 30.
Rampaul sustained an injury during the tri-series against India and Sri Lanka last month, which forced him to miss most of the tournament and the ODIs and T20s against Pakistan.
Richardson, who has played just one official T20 match for Jamaica in 2010, said he wasn't fazed by the format. "I'm not worried about that because over the years I have been playing consistent first-class cricket both in the longer four-day version and I've had some very good one-day seasons," Richardson said. "I've also played a lot of non-first class Twenty20 cricket in Jamaica and for Jamaica, so I know my ability and I will contribute to the Jamaica Tallawahs when the time comes for me to play."
Richardson, who made his first-class and List A debuts in the 2002-03 season, has played 67 first-class matches and has taken 189 wickets at an average of 24.06. In 33 List A games, Richardson has taken 28 wickets at an average of 40.85. In his sole T20 for Jamaica, the bowler took two wickets for 16 runs.
