Holder replaces injured McCoy in West Indies' T20 World Cup squad

McCoy has been ruled out of the tournament due to a leg injury

West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder replaces Obed McCoy for the remainder of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. McCoy has been ruled out of the tournament due to a leg injury. McCoy played West Indies' first game of the tournament against England in which he finished with figures of 0 for 12 in two overs.

"All-rounder Holder, who has played 199 international matches including 27 T20Is, was named as a replacement after McCoy was ruled out due to a leg injury. Holder was a reserve as per the allowance for teams to travel with extra players in view of COVID-19 quarantine requirements," a media release from ICC said.

West Indies have lost both their matches in the tournament so far - the first one to England by six wickets followed by an eight-wicket loss to South Africa.

McCoy is not the first player to be ruled out due to an injury. Not too long ago Fabien Allen's World Cup campaign too came to an abrupt end due to an ankle injury and was replaced by Akeal Hosein.

In a bid to resurrect their campaign, the defending champions will take on Bangladesh, who are also coming off the back of a loss against England next on Friday (October 29) in Sharjah. West Indies have just not put up enough runs on the board in the tournament so far. They were bundled out for 55 against England in the first game and then managed just 143 for 8 against South Africa in the next. 

They will hope for a better showing in their next game.
