West Indies spinner Sulieman Benn has replaced fellow spinner Sunil Narine in the national team for the upcoming ODI series against India, which gets underway on October 8 in Kochi.

Benn has not represented the West Indies in any limited overs matches since the 2011 World Cup. In the 25 ODIs he has played, Benn has taken 29 wickets at an average of 31.86.

Narine was withdrawn from the series against India after he was banned from bowling in the recently concluded Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20). As a result, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) decided that he should return home to get his action assessed.
