CRICKET: Injured batsman Simmons out of India tour

Batsman Lendl Simmons has been ruled out of the remainder of West Indies' tour of India due to a back injury.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) says Simmons will return to Trinidad & Tobago to continue his rehabilitation.

The batsman was not picked in the playing eleven for the first two One-Day Internationals (ODI), and had only played a practice game against India A on the tour.

The WICB is expected to announce a replacement for Simmons in the coming days.

Simmons, who last played a Test for West Indies in 2011, has not been a part of the five-day squad for the last couple of years but has featured regularly in the limited-overs matches.

The five-match ODI series between India and West Indies was reduced to four matches following the cancellation of the third ODI in Visakhapatnam due to a cyclone.

The teams are level at 1-1 after two games.
