Collins withdraws from series

Left-arm fast bowler Pedro Collins has withdrawn from the West Indies squad for the home series against Sri Lanka.



Collins said he had signed a two-year Kolpak deal with Surrey last October.



The 31 year old Barbadian cannot keep his Kolpak deal and represent the Caribbean side, unless he becomes an overseas player for Surrey.



Other West Indian players with Kolpak deals include Wavell Hinds and Jermaine Lawson.



The West Indies Cricket Board yesterday confirmed receipt of Collins withdrawal. The board said a decision has still not been made on a replacement.
