ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC):
JAMAICA CAPTAIN Wavell Hinds has been called up to replace the injured Shivnarine Chanderpaul for the final two games of the Digicel one-day international (ODI) series against India in Trinidad and Tobago tomorrow and Sunday.
Opening batsman Sewnarine Chattergoon, who made his debut earlier in the season against Zimbabwe, replaces Runako Morton in the other change to the home side
Chanderpaul suffered a hamstring injury during his vital innings of 58 in a 106-run fifth-wicket partnership with Ramnaresh Sarwan which helped West Indies beat India by four wickets for a 2-1 lead in the series on Tuesday in St. Kitts.
"Scans after the game at Warner Park revealed that Chanderpaul suffered a small hamstring tear to his left leg," the West Indies management team announced in a press release yesterday.
The 31-year-old Chanderpaul will miss the final two ODIs as a result but will remain with the squad to receive treatment from team physiotherapist Stephen Partridge.
Hinds gets his first call for the home series after representing the Caribbean side on their New Zealand tour earlier this year, while the left-handed Chattergoon returns to the fold after a couple of outings against Zimbabwe in the preceding series.
Chattergoon, who scored an unbeaten 54 in the fifth ODI against Zimbabwe under lights in St. Lucia, gets in ahead of Morton, who has struggled for 24 runs in three innings so far in the series, including one and zero in his last two knocks.
West Indies squad: Brian Lara (captain), Christopher Gayle, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Wavell Hinds, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, Carlton Baugh, Corey Collymore, Fidel Edwards, Jerome Taylor, Ian Bradshaw, Dave Mohammed.
