ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel named Keemo Paul as the replacement for Fabian Allen in the T20 International Series against Afghanistan.

Allen, the left-arm spinner and right-hander batsman, suffered an injury to his right knee while fielding in the first contest of the three-match series on Thursday night at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow, India.

Scans revealed a Grade 1 posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) sprain and he is expected to be out of cricket for approximately two weeks. CWI is making arrangements for Allen to remain in India and complete his rehabilitation.

West Indies lead the series 1-0 following their win the opening match.

Full Squad: Kieron Pollard (captain), Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Denesh Ramdin, Sherfane Rutherford, Lendl Simmons, Hayden Walsh Jr, Kesrick Williams. (PR)
