Fudadin Called Up For 3rd Digicel Test


He comes in for leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo. Middle-order batsman Kirk Edwards, who was in the squad for the Second Digicel Test, has not recovered from a leg injury and is not available for selection.

Fudadin, a 26-year-old from Guyana, is a steady batsman, who was the second highest run-scorer in the recently-concluded Regional 4 Day competition. He made 576 runs at an average of 48 runs per innings with a top score of 108.

Chairman of the WICB Selection Panel, 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 4 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.”

The West Indies will travel to Dominica on Friday in preparation for the Third Digicel Test, which starts on Monday at 10 am (9 am Jamaica Time).
