Cricket West Indies (CWI) has made one change to their squad for the third T20I against India on August 6 (Tuesday) at the Province Stadium in Guyana. Fabian Allen has made his way into the team in place of spinner Kharry Pierre. West Indies will look to salvage their pride after losing the first two matches of the series and will hope to pull one back.
West Indies make one change to their squad
West Indies will have a lot to work on to avoid a whitewash. They have struggled for consistency, which has hurt them badly so far in the series. Besides, the batters have failed terribly and failed to provide support to their bowlers. The batting unit needs to work on their application and put their best foot forward as the two-time World Champions has begun their preparation in the bid for the third World Cup trophy.
As a result, the selectors have added one extra batsman to the squad for the final and the third game. Fabian Allen, who was a part of the ICC World Cup 2019 came in place of young all-rounder Khary Pierre, who played the second game but had zero impact. Allen impressed in whatever limited opportunities have come his way and will be keen to make the most of this opportunity in a bid to cement his place in the playing XI.
Interim chairman of selectors, Robert Haynes, said that the change was made considering the upcoming World T20 next year. He has hailed Fabian Allen and said that he has proved his abilities in the recent World Cup for West Indies. The 24-year Allen has so far played nine T20 Internationals and 10 One-Day Internationals.

“Fabian is a lively and energetic all-rounder and someone who we believe can win matches for us. We witnessed his performances in the Caribbean Premier League last year and also saw in the recent World Cup what he’s capable of doing. We are planning for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia next year, so we decided to include him here,” Haynes said.
