Barbados Tridents lose Imad and Wahab to international duty

Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz will not be available for Barbados Tridents in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season owing to their international commitments.

The duo has thus been replaced by former South Africa batsman JP Duminy and uncapped Australian fast bowler Josh Lalor.

While Wahab's absence will be a major blow to Jason Holder's Tridents given the fact he was the side's most consistent bowler over the past two CPL editions, Lalor comes into the competition with a reputation of excelling in T20 cricket.

Lalor was one of the top players for Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League, also managing a hat-trick and a five-wicket haul in the tournament.

Imad, who previously played for Jamaica Tallawahs in the CPL including their title-winning campaign in 2016, was set to represent Tridents for the first time but has been called up for national duty.

The vastly experienced Duminy retired from international cricket after a lackluster World Cup performance where South Africa finished seventh on the points table.

He has proven himself to be a sought after commodity in T20 cricket, having played in over 300 matches across formats.

Tridents begin their CPL campaign against Guyana Amazon Warriors in Georgetown on September 9 and will be hoping to improve upon their last-place finish last year.
