Fudadin out of South Africa Tests
Assad Fudadin, the West Indies batsman, has been ruled out of the South Africa Tests with a finger injury. The WICB is yet to name a replacement.
Fudadin had fractured his right little finger during West Indies' warm-ups on the first morning of the Centurion Test, and had surgery on the finger later in the day.
He had himself been brought into the squad as a replacement player, after Darren Bravo withdrew due to personal reasons.
Fudadin, who had played three Tests for West Indies in 2012, had recently showed some form for the A team in Sri Lanka, scoring a century in Moratuwa in October. He had also scored an 89 for the Sagicor High Performance Centre team against the visiting Bangladesh A team in a first-class game before that.
