Sunil Ambris gets Windies World Cup call up
Vincentian Sunil Ambris has been called up to replace the injured Andre Russell in the West Indies World Cup team.
Ambris has six one-day internationals under his belt, with his last four successive innings, making scores of note.
Part of the West Indies team that took on Bangladesh and Ireland in a tri-nation one-day series last month in Ireland, Ambris had scores of 38 versus Bangladesh, 148 against Ireland, as well as 23 and 69 not out against Bangladesh.
He however travels to England to be part of a West Indies team that has won a solitary match, lost five and had one rained out.
West Indies sit at position eight on the ten team table, with their hopes of making it to the semi-finals, mathematically improbable.
Ambris should be in England in time for Thursday’s match against India. He could immediately find himself in action, in place of opening batsman Evin Lewis, who injured his hamstring in the West Indies five-run loss to New Zealand last Saturday.
Following Thursday’s match versus India, the West Indies’ next opponents are Sri Lanka (July 1) and Afghanistan (July 4).
