The defending T20 World champions asked to replace Obed McCoy in their squad for the rest of the tournament after the pacer was diagnosed with an injury to his right leg. The ICC Event Technical Committee approved the change on Wednesday 27 October, allowing Jason Holder to be drafted in as a replacement. West Indies have had a torrid start to their campaign, losing both of their opening matches in Group 1 to leave them needing results to go their way if they are to make it into the semi-finals and stake a claim for a title defence.
