Khulna: The West Indies have called up uncapped Barbados pace bowler Jason Holder to replace Tino Best in the five-match one-day series against Bangladesh, team officials said on Sunday.
Best aggravated an old hamstring injury in the second Test in Khulna which West Indies won by 10 wickets on Sunday to complete a 2-0 sweep of the two-Test series.
Barbadian Best played through the pain to take a career-best 6 for 40 in the second innings, setting up an easy win. Best also played a key role in 77-run first Test win in Dhaka where he took 5 for 24 in the second innings.
The 21-year old Holder, who has taken 47 wickets in 16 first-class matches, will join the squad on Monday, said team spokesman Adriel Richard.
The five-match ODI series between Bangladesh and West Indies begins in Khulna on November 30.
