West Indies call up Fudadin for third test



Left-hander Assad Fudadin was on Thursday called into the West Indies squad for the third and final test against Australia which starts at Windsor Park in Dominica on Monday.

He comes in for legspinner Devendra Bishoo.

Middle-order batsman Kirk Edwards, who was in the squad for the second test, has not recovered from a leg injury and is not available for selection.

Fudadin, a 26-year-old from Guyana, is a steady batsman, who was the second highest run-scorer in the recently-concluded Regional 4-Day competition where he made 576 runs at an average of 48 with a top score of 108.

Chairman of the West Indies Cricket Board selection panel, Clyde Butts said: "Fudadin has been a member of the West Indies A Team for a while now and we have seen signs of development and improvement."

"This year he batted well in the Regional 4-Day Tournament, and made over 500 runs including two centuries. He was very consistent in the middle-order. He can also bowl medium-pace and that is an asset."

The second test at Queen's Park Oval here was abandoned as a draw on Thursday after Australia won the opener in Barbados by three wickets.
