Andre Russell to be replaced by Sunil Ambris in West Indies squad


West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell is to miss the rest of the World Cup due to an injury to his left knee.

Russell played against Pakistan, Australia, England and Bangladesh earlier in the tournament, taking five wickets but scoring just 26 runs in three innings.

However he has long-standing fitness issues and has increasingly looked under physical duress when faced with the demands of a 50-over game.

Russell will be replaced in the squad by top-order batsman Sunil Ambris, who has played in six Tests and six one-day internationals.
