Leicestershire captain Ramnaresh Sarwan has been ruled out for the remainder of the county season after sustaining a back injury.
Sarwan, who also plays for the West Indies, has only represented Leicestershire in five County Championship matches and has subsequently decided to return home to Guyana.
“I am naturally very disappointed to have had my season cut short at Grace Road this season,” he said. “It has been a frustrating time not being out in the middle with the lads and I want to wish all the players and the coaching staff the best of luck for the rest of the season.
“I am confident that this time to recuperate and undergo my rehab will give me the best possible chance of representing the West Indies in next year’s ODI World Cup and I have my eyes set on returning to county cricket in 2015.”
Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris will replace Sarwan as captain.
