West Indian squad faces a setback ahead of 2nd T20 against Pakistan

KARACHI: West Indian squad touring Pakistan faces a big setback ahead of the second T20 match with Pakistan.

West Indian bowler Veerasammy Permaul has been ruled out of the remaining T20Is against Pakistan after suffering an ankle injury during the opening match on Sunday.

The 28-year old twisted his ankle while bowling against Pakistan in the first T20I at Karachi’s National Stadium on Sunday. He had to be stretchered off the field and was taken to a nearby hospital for tests.

“The results show no fracture in his ankle but confirm muscle rupture which requires at least a week to recover,” said an official of Pakistan Cricket Board attributing Jimmy Adams – Cricket West Indies’ director.

Pakistan outclassed a depleted West Indies by 143 runs in the first of three-match T20I series by a mammoth margin of 143 runs. The teams meet today in the second T20I and on Tuesday for the third and final match.
