Obed McCoy, the 22-year-old left-arm pacer, has been included in the Windies squad for the remainder of the T20I series against England. McCoy will join the squad in St. Kitts, where Windies play the last two T20Is on Friday (March 8) and Sunday (March 10).
McCoy, who made his ODI debut in October 2018 in the series against India, picked up four wickets. McCoy had earlier come up with impressive performances in the Global T20 Canada and the Caribbean Premier League.
McCoy’s inclusion for the remaining two T20Is against England comes in the wake of Andre Russell’s withdrawal from the series “due to an adverse reaction he had to a medical procedure done in Dubai before he flew to the Caribbean,” according to the CWI medical panel.
