Sulieman Benn replaces Narine

Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn has been called up to replace Sunil Narine in the West Indies One-Day International squad in India.

The Barbadian will join the team in Kochi ahead of the 1st ODI, which will be played on Wednesday.

Benn, 33, has played 25 One-Day Internationals, taking 29 wickets at an average of 31.86.

Recalled to the Test team earlier this year, he played all three games against New Zealand and both against Bangladesh. However, he has not played an ODI since March 2011, when the West Indies lost by 80 runs to India in the 2011 World Cup.

Narine was withdrawn by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) after being reported for bowling with a suspected illegal action twice during the recent Champions League T20.

He was banned from bowling in yesterday’s final, which Chennai Super Kings won, and was then withdrawn from the ODI squad by the WICB.
