The 2013 German Masters champion and World No.15 Carter was scheduled to play the winner of wild card round match between India`s Kamal Chawla and Rod Lawler.
The main draw field will be without one of the most flamboyant characters of pro snooker, veteran Tony Drago from Malta, who along with Carter, China`s Yu Delu, Anthony Hamilton, Kyren Wilson and David Gilbert pulled out of the tournament.
