West Indies will have tweak in the squad.

“The defending T20 World champions asked to replace Obed McCoy in their squad for the remainder of the tournament after the bowler was diagnosed with an injury to his right leg.

And an ICC Event Technical Committee made up of Chris Tetley (Head of Events, Chair), Clive Hitchcock (ICC Senior Cricket Operations Manager), Rahul Dravid and Dhiraj Malhotra (BCCI Representatives), Simon Doull and Ian Bishop (Independent Members) approved the change on Wednesday 27 October, allowing Jason Holder to join the 15.

The West Indies have lost both of their opening matches in Group 1 to leave them needing results to go their way if they are to make it into the semi-finals and defend their T20 World Cup title next month.

And they will have to play their remaining three Super 12 fixtures without McCoy, after the 24-year-old picked up an injury in the loss to England,” ICC said in a statement.
