As top-order batsman Asif Ali is set to travel back to Pakistan owing to domestic commitments, the Barbados Tridents have announced that he will be replaced by hard-hitting Australian batsman Dan Christian.
Christian is a T20 veteran, having played as many as 293 matches in the format across his career. He has featured in the English T20 Blast, IPL, PSL, BBL, and has also played in the CPL previously for the Trinbago Knight Riders when they won the title in 2017.
Internationally, Christian has played 19 ODIs and 16 T20Is for Australia, and has two T20 hundreds to his name. He is also effective with the ball, taking a five wicket haul twice in his career and taking four wickets in an innings six times.
He will be a part of the Tridents squad for the remainder of CPL 2019.
