Baugh named to replace Ramdin
Bridgetown, Barbados — The West Indies Cricket Board’s Selection Panel has called up Carlton Baugh to replace Denesh Ramdin for the first three matches of the Digicel One-Day International Series against Australia.
Ramdin suffered a fractured right thumb while batting on Saturday afternoon in the second West Indies warm-up match at the 3Ws Oval at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies.
Ramdin, who was appointed Vice Captain, will return to Trinidad to start rehabilitation. He is expected to be out for a minimum of two weeks. A new Vice Captain will be named in the coming days.
Baugh made a century (140) while playing for Jamaica against Trinidad & Tobago in the Regional 4Day Tournament. His place in the Jamaica XI has been taken by Horace Miller, who will fully participate in the match.
The Playing Conditions of the Regional 4Day tournament allow for replacement players if a member of the original playing XI is called up for West Indies duty .
West Indies will depart from Barbados and arrive in St. Vincent on Monday, where they will contest the first three Digicel ODIs on March 16, 18 and 20 at the Arnos Vale Cricket Ground.
