Edwards, Thomas replace injured duo in WI squad

February 20, 2011 19:13 IST

Batsman Kirk Edwards and wicketkeeper batsman Devon Thomas have been drafted into the West Indies World Cup squad after Carlton Baugh and Adrian Barath were ruled out, the International Cricket Council said.

Opener Barath and wicketkeeper Baugh were both forced out earlier this week with hamstring injuries, forcing the West Indies Cricket Board to seek replacements.

Edwards, 26, is a right-handed batsman who has yet to make his West Indies debut, while Thomas, 21, has played two ODIs.

Baugh and Barath bring the number of replacements needed for the tournament to 10 after Ed Rainsford, Tinotenda Mawoyo and Sean Ervine of Zimbabwe, Australia's Nathan Hauritz and Michael Hussey, Praveen Kumar of India, England's Eoin Morgan and Sohail Tanvir of Pakistan were replaced.
