Cricket West Indies (CWI) announced a replacement for left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie who has been ruled out of the remainder of the three-match series with a lower back injury.

Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul will join the side as cover for Motie for the ongoing ‘A’ Team Series in Bangladesh.

Motie will travel to Dubai ahead of the West Indies’ three-match One-Day International (ODI) Series against the United Arab Emirates at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

He will not play but will receive treatment from the medical staff with the aim of being available for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe which start on 18 June.

Off-spinner Kevin Sinclair, who is presently in Bangladesh with the ‘A’ Team, will replace Motie in the 15-member ODI squad for the series in Sharjah.

Experienced batter Johnson Charles has also been called into the ODI squad as a replacement for Devon Thomas.

Thomas has been provisionally suspended from playing cricket due to charges brought by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit under the Anti-Corruption codes.
