Fidel back, Best dropped

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – The return of Fidel Edwards has been overshadowed by the omission of fellow fast bowler Tino Best for disciplinary reasons ahead of Barbados’ second round match against England Lions in the WICB Regional first-championship, starting on Friday at Kensington Oval.

West Indies fast bowler Edwards has been named as the replacement for Best, as the only change to their 13-member squad for the match, ending a 15-month spell on the sidelines recovering from career-threatening back injury, which required surgery.
