Windies replace injured Russell with Ambris

Sunil Ambris has been cleared to replace the injured Andre Russell in West Indies' Cricket World Cup squad.

All-rounder Russell was ruled out of the rest of the tournament due to a knee injury.

Opening batsman Ambris was selected as the man to take Russell's place and the ICC on Monday sanctioned the replacement.

Ambris has played only six ODIs but scored 148 against Ireland last month and also made an unbeaten half-century against Bangladesh. 

The 26-year-old right-hander will be hoping to get the nod to partner Chris Gayle at the top of the order when the Windies face India in a must-win contest at Old Trafford on Thursday.
