West Indies batsman Lendl Simmons has been ruled out for the remainder of the ongoing tour of India after he sustained a back injury.

According to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Simmons, who was not picked for the first two ODIs, will return to Trinidad and Tobago to continue his rehabilitation.

The WICB also noted that they will announce a replacement for Simmons in the next couple of days.

The ongoing ODI series, which is currently tied 1-1, was recently reduced from five matches to four after the third ODI in Visakhapatnam was cancelled due to Cyclone Hudhud.
