There have been questions over why batsman Sunil Ambris has been chosen to replace all-rounder Andre Russell in the West Indies' ICC World Cup squad for their last three matches of the tournament.
News from inside the team camp is that Ambris was preferred to all-rounders Keiron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo because of the injury to opening batsman Evin Lewis. If the left-hander doesn't recover in time for the India match Thursday, Ambris can easily come into the match as his replacement.
Lewis has struggled with a hand injury in the tournament and after that was sorted out, he suffered a strained thigh in the clash between New Zealand and West Indies at Manchester on Saturday.
He left the field very early in the New Zealand innings and as a result came in to bat at number eight. But knowing that he could not run properly between the wickets, the left-hander threw his bat and was caught behind square without scoring. Needless to say, he hasn't had the best World Cup so far and has scored only one half-century, a blistering 70 against Bangladesh at Taunton.
The West Indies have a remote chance of still making it into the final four but it will mean that they must deafeat India tomorrow in the first instance. After this, they will meet an improving Sri Lanka at Durham before ending their round-robin campaign with a clash against a fighting Afghanistan unit at Headingley, Leeds.
At the Leeds match, the Caribbean Cricket Club, which is located in Leeds, will be bringing out members in their numbers to support and show appreciation for the West Indies team. They are hoping that the West Indies still have a chance by the time they reach Leeds, as they want to make it a carnival-like affair as they continue their annual Windrush celebrations.
