Injury rules Fudadin out of South Africa series

The 29-year-old Guyanese batsman suffered a fracture of the little finger on his right hand during warm-up on the opening day of the first Test on Wednesday. He underwent surgery late Wednesday, the WICB said in a release.

The WICB said a replacement player will be named in the coming days.

Fudadin, who played three Tests in 2012 against England and New Zealand, was selected as a replacement for Darren Bravo who pulled out of the tour, citing personal reasons.

Meanwhile in Brisban, Australia, West Indies leg-spinner Samuel Badree has been ruled out of the Big Bash League due to a shoulder injury.

The Trinidad & Tobago cricketer, who will undergo surgery, was set to turn out for Brisbane Heat in the Australian Twenty20 league, which began yesterday.

“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,” said Heat general manager Andrew Blucher.

“We wish him a speedy and successful recovery.”

Former England allrounder Andrew Flintoff and New Zealand left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori are now the Heat’s only two international signings this year.
