ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Senior Men’s Selection Panel today named Roston Chase as the replacement for Obed McCoy in the 15-member squad for the T20 International Series (T20I) against South Africa starting on 25 March. McCoy was named in the original squad subject to medical clearance but has been ruled out of the upcoming series due to a knee injury.

Lead Selector The Most Hon. Dr Desmond Haynes said: “Roston gets an opportunity in the upcoming series as we see him being a versatile player who can be called upon at any stage in the game. We want to wish Obed the best with his rehabilitation programme and hope to see him back in West Indies colours soon.”

The three-match T20I Series bowls off on Saturday 25 March at SuperSports Park in Centurion. The second match will be at the same venue the following day, while the third match will be at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Tuesday 28 March.

To be fair it looks like they already have plenty of seam options so it's not the worst thing they could have done.

McCoy has issues with shin splints. This will follow him throughout his career. I am unaware if that can be remedied.

Ravi Rampaul had the same problem and he seemed to have remedied it.
I heard Ian Bishop say on air that McCoy trains very hard...even over trains...could be continuously aggravating the problem
