St John's: West Indies white-ball skipper Kieron Pollard has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming tour of Pakistan as the hamstring injury he sustained in the ICC men's T20 World Cup has unfortunately not recovered in time.
The Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel has named the experienced Devon Thomas, as the replacement in the ODI squad while all-rounder Rovman Powell, is the replacement in the T20 International (T20I) squad.
Cricket West Indies said Pollard will undergo rehabilitation work in Trinidad, under the supervision of CWI's Chief Medical Officer, Dr Israel Dowlat, and will be reassessed in a few weeks ahead of the upcoming home tours against Ireland and England in January 2022.
All six games against Pakistan will be played in Karachi. The first T20I is on December 13 while the final ODI is on December 22.
