31-year old Russell had taken five wickets in four games but visibly struggled with a knee problem.

26-year old batsman Sunil Ambris has been confirmed as his replacement, and he will join up with his team in preparation for his side’s match against India at Old Trafford, on Thursday 27 June.

Ambris averages 105.33 from his six ODIs, with his solitary international century coming against Ireland in the recent Tri-series that also featured Bangladesh.

West Indies currently sit eighth in the CWC19 standing, and depending on other results going their way, three wins are required from their final three matches to remain in contention for a semi-final spot
