T20 World Cup 2021: Even before the start of the Super 12 matches in the T20 World Cup, the defending champion West Indies team has suffered a major setback. The team’s star all-rounder Fabian Allen has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury. In his place, Akeel Hussain has now been included in the team. Hussain is present in Dubai with the team as a reserve player. The ICC has given this information by issuing a media statement. Let us tell you that Fabian Allen’s exclusion from the team can prove to be a big blow for the West Indies. Allen is considered a specialist in T20 and was a very important part of West Indies’ plan to win the third consecutive World Cup.

The ICC said in its statement, “The Technical Committee of the T20 World Cup event has given permission to the West Indies to include Aqeel Hossain in the team in place of Fabian Allen.” Let us tell you that the West Indies team will start the campaign against England from 23 October. The West Indies team has already qualified for the Super 12 stage. Gudakesh Motie has been included in place of Hussain in the list of reserve players. Talking about Aqeel Hossain, so far he has participated in nine One Day Internationals and six T20 Internationals for West Indies. His performance in domestic cricket has also been very good.
