Russell to miss rest of World Cup

London, Jun 25 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 6/25/2019 12:30:20 PM IST

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.
The West Indies started the tournament with an impressive win over Pakistan but have lost all four of their completed matches since. They are next in action against India at OId Trafford on Thursday.
