West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell will play no further part in the Cricket World Cup 2019 after being ruled out due to a knee injury. This is a massive blow for the West Indies.

Andre Russell has 5 wickets from 4 matches to his name but clearly struggled with a Knee discomfort. He has been terrible with the bat, with the highest score of 21.

Russell hasn’t been able to emulate his heroics from the IPL and his performances have been below par.

Russell did not play in West Indies last game against New Zealand, which resulted in a narrow defeat.

Sunil Ambris has been confirmed as his replacement, and he will join up with his team in preparation for his side’s match against India at Old Trafford, on Thursday 27 June.

Ambris has played 6 ODIs, scoring at an average of 105.3. However, his only Hundred was against Ireland earlier in May.

West Indies currently sit eighth in the CWC19 standing, and their chances of a semi-final place are very slim.
