Jamaica and West Indies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing ICC World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe with a hamstring injury. Cottrell suffered the injury during West Indies' first group game, against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in which he bowled only 4.4 overs.
He has been replaced by Guyanese Under-19 World Cup winner Keemo Paul. The uncapped 20 year old fast bowler is remembered for effecting a Mankad to dismiss the last Zimbabwean batsman in their must-win the ICC Under-19 World Cup group match and also hit the winning runs in the final against India. Paul has taken 82 wickets across first-class and 50 over formats, with bowling averages of 17.35 and 21.32 respectively.
