SPORTS – Simmons out of World T20

Lendl Simmons has been ruled out of the International Cricket Council’s World Twenty20 Tournament due to a back injury.

A statement from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) issued today said the 31-year-old right-handed top-order batsman will remain in Trinidad to continue his rehabilitation. A replacement player will be named in the coming days.

The Windies are due to arrive in Kolkata on Monday ahead of the global event and will play official warm-up matches against India on March 10 and against Australia on March 13.

West Indies have been drawn in Group 1 of the Super 10 stage where they will play alongside England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and one of the qualifiers from the first round.
