Shannon Gabriel ruled out of West Indies, Tino Best called in as replacment

West Indies bowler Shannon Gabriel is replaced by Tino Best after suffering a back injury, which rules him out for the rest of the tour.

The West Indies have drafted in Tino Best to the side following Shannon Gabriel's back injury ahead of the second Test match against England.

The young paceman has been forced to withdraw from the tour after making his debut at Lord's last week.

The International Cricket Council wrote on Twitter: "West Indies paceman Shannon Gabriel to return home with a back injury, Tino Best named his replacement."

The injury to the right-arm bowler, who took three wickets during the five-day contest, will come as a blow to the West Indies following their defeat to the home side yesterday.

Best has racked up 28 wickets from his last 14 Test appearances for the West Indies.
