We were unable to obtain medical clearance for Deandra Dottin: Gujarat Giants | Cricket News

MUMBAI: The inaugural Women’s Premier League has been hit with its first major controversy. Just hours before Saturday night’s opener, the Gujarat Giants announced that Irish-born Australian all-rounder Kim Garth had replaced West Indies big hitter Deandra Dottin on their team due to injury.
However, Dottin dropped a bombshell on Saturday when she revealed on social media that she was fit and healthy.
On Sunday, the Gujarat Giants tweeted a statement in which they said they were unable to obtain medical clearance for Deandra Dottin, who is mandatory to play in the WPL. In the statement, GG said the West Indian will be part of the team in future editions of WPL once she has been medically cleared to play in the League.

“Deandra is a world-class player and a wonderful signing for the franchise. Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain medical clearances by the set deadline for this season. Such clearances are a requirement for all players participating in the WPL. We look forward to seeing her return to the field soon. Subject to the approval of her medical report, she will be part of the Gujarat Giants squad for the next few seasons,” GG said in the statement. , without specifying what exactly was the medical problem that prevented Dottin, who played in 143 WODIs and 127 T20Is for the West Indies, from playing in the WPL.
Earlier, responding to a ‘Get Well Soon’ post on Instagram, the 31-year-old from Barbados wrote ‘Get Well Soon from what can I ask’. She also took to Twitter to express her frustration and wrote: “I really appreciate all the messages but truth be told I only get over the anointing of the Holy Spirit thank you.”
