Lendl Simmons to return home
NEW DELHI – Injured opener Lendl Simmons has been ruled out of the one-day tour of India with a back injury.
The right-hander has yet to play a game on tour and will now return home to Trinidad and Tobago to continue his rehabilitation, the West Indies Cricket Board announced in a release.
Simmons represented Mumbai Indians in the qualifying round of the recently held Champions League Twenty20 prior to joining the Windies squad.
West Indies selectors are yet to name a replacement.
The one-day series is level at 1-1 after West Indies won the first game in Kochi by 124 runs last Wednesday and lost the second in New Delhi by 48 runs on Saturday.
Bad weather forced the cancellation of the third ODI scheduled for Visakhapatnam, reducing the five-match series to a four-match affair. (CMC)
