Fast bowler Sheldon Cotterell has sustained an injury and will return from the West Indies A Team tour of India. The left-arm pacer was suffering from pain in the left knee and did not play. He will return to Jamaica to continue his rehabilitation.
Fidel Edwards has been named as his replacement. Edwards is an experienced international player, who has played 55 Test matches, 50 One-Day Internationals and 20 T20 Internationals.
"It was a devastating blow when we found out that Sheldon was injured and could not play. He is one of the most promising quick bowlers we have in the West Indies. We were looking forward to seeing him perform well on this tour for West Indies A Team, but unfortunately he has been ruled out due to injury," team manager Lockhart Sebastien said.
West Indies A Team won the one-day series 2-1 and lost the one-off Twenty20. The two teams are presently playing the first of three four-day first-class matches
