Cummins in for Gabriel on Aussie tour

The West Indies Cricket Board’s Selection Panel today named fast bowler Miguel Cummins as the replacement for pacer Shannon Gabriel on the ongoing Test Series against Australia in Australia.

Cummins, 25, has taken 99 wickets at an average of 22.83 in 36 first-class matches. He has made one international appearance for West Indies – in an ODI against Ireland at Sabina Park, Jamaica in February, 2014.

The 27-year-old Gabriel suffered a stress reaction in left ankle bone while bowling in the first innings of the first Test match at the Blundstone Arena in Hobart.

He will return to Trinidad in the coming days to continue his rehabilitation.
