West Indies left-handed batsman Assad Fudadin has been ruled out of the ongoing three-match Test Series against South Africa due to injury.



The 29-year-old Guyanese batsman suffered a fracture of the little finger on his right hand during warm-up on the opening day of the first Test yesterday.



The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) in a release said Fudadin underwent surgery late yesterday.



WICB says a replacement player will be named in the coming days.



Fudadin, who played three Tests in 2012 against England and New Zealand, was selected as a replacement for Darren Bravo who pulled out of the tour citing personal reasons.
