Mohamed Shoib is not available due to a thigh strain
Mohamed Shoib is not available due to a thigh strain, which he sustained in his side’s match against Uganda on Friday. He will be replaced by Nishant Chugh, the 31-year-old right-handed batsman and off-spinner.
The confirmation was conveyed to the Singapore squad on behalf of the committee.
Any request for a replacement requires a written submission to the Event Technical Committee. Once replaced, a player may not return to the squad save as an approved subsequent replacement for another injured or ill player.
As with all players in the tournament, the eligibility of a replacement player is subject to approval by the ICC before that player can be officially added to the squad.
The Event Technical Committee of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 3 comprises Tim Anderson (ICC, Chairman), Edward Fitzgibbon (IDI representative), Dev Govindjee (Tournament Referee), Mohammed Iqbal Ali (Malaysia Cricket Association representative) and another representative of ICC.
