Simmons sent home from India tour
The West Indies will be without batsman Lendl Simmons for the rest of the tour to India, and he has returned to the Caribbean to continue treatment on a back injury.
Simmons did not play in the first two ODIs due to his injury, and has not been part of the Test squad for a few years. As such, the WICB opted to send him home.
The WICB tweeted: “WICB advised that Lendl Simmons has been ruled out of the tour of India. He has a back injury and will return to T&T to continue his rehab.”
They have not named a replacement for the player, but have a bit of time as the third ODI, scheduled for Tuesday, was cancelled due to severe weather coming from cyclone HudHud near Visag.
