Russell ruled out of ODI due to injury

Just one game into his highly anticipated return, West Indies’ talented all-rounder Andre Russell has been sidelined by injury.

The 30-year-old has been ruled out of Saturday’s third and final ODI against Bangladesh in St Kitts due to a knee injury.

Russell played in the first ODI which the Windies lost by 48 runs, scoring 13 runs and finishing with the figures of 1-62 from nine overs. It was the first time he had played an ODI for the regional side since November 2015.

He did not play in the second ODI which the home side won by three runs.

However, the injury is not said to be a serious one with Russell having already received treatment. He is expected to be available for the three-match T20 series which begins in St Kitts on Tuesday.

In his absence, burly Jamaican fast bowler Sheldon Cotterell has been named as his replacement.
