West Indian batsman Assad Fudadin has been ruled out of his side's Test series in South Africa after fracturing a finger ahead of the opening match at Centurion.

Fudadin fractured the little finger on his right hand during the warm-up ahead of the first game, which got underway yesterday.

He underwent surgery later in the day and will play no further part with the West Indies scheduled to play two further Tests, in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

The 29-year-old had been called up to the squad as a replacement for Darren Bravo, who pulled out due to personal reasons.

He scored 10 runs and took two catches during the West Indies' drawn tour game against a South African Invitational XI in Benoni.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will now name a replacement player for the left-hander.
