Fabian Allen to miss CPL after missing flight to Trinidad and Tobago
The destructive all-rounder from West Indies, Fabian Allen has been ruled out of the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League due to the unexpected reason. Fabian Allen was supposed to represent St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots but he has been ruled out of the squad after missing the flight from Jamaica to Barbados.
The upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will be played from August 18 and the finals of the tournament to be played on 10th September. The entire tournament is set to be played in Trinidad and Tobago due to the pandemic coronavirus. As per government rules, nobody should enter or exit the country other than that of chartered flights. As the bowling all-rounder missed the flight, he will not be available for the T20 league.
Allen made his debut in CPL in 2017 for St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and impressed everyone with his performance as an all-rounder. He could score 337 runs at the massive strike-rate of 181.81 with the highest knock of 66. He has also represented his country in the limited-overs format. Allen is a very handy all-rounder who can pick-up important wickets and scores quick runs in the death overs. Apart from his batting and bowling, he is a good fielder as well.
The agent of Allen told that there was a confusion about the flight details that lead him to miss the flight. “Unfortunately, there was some confusion with his understanding of the flight details and he missed the flight. We explored all possibilities, but due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Trinidad, the charter flight on Monday was the only way he could enter the country,” the agent said.
