West Indies have added 22-year old fast bowler Obed McCoy to their Twenty20 International squad for the remaining two games of the ongoing series against England, to be played on 8 and 10 March in St. Kitts.

McCoy, a left-arm fast bowler, made his international debut against India in October last year, and has four wickets from two ODIs. He is uncapped in the other two formats.

Now, McCoy may be in line to make his T20I debut, after all-rounder Andre Russell pulled out of the series "due to an adverse reaction to a medical procedure done in Dubai before he flew to the Caribbean," according to a Cricket West Indies media release on 4 March.

The pacer impressed in the Caribbean Premier League and the Global T20 League in Canada, and has picked up 10 wickets from 10 T20 matches so far at 26.80.

England lead the three-match T20I series 1-0, having won the first match in Gros Islet by four wickets.

Windies squad for the second and third T20Is: Jason Holder (c), Fabian Allen, Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, John Campbell, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Obed McCoy, Ashley Nurse, Nicholas Pooran, Oshane Thomas
