Hamilton: A hamstring injury has ruled West Indies Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy out of the two-match T20 series against New Zealand on January 11 (Auckland) and 15 (Wellington). ODI captain Dwayne Bravo will now lead the side in the T20 series.
Sammy suffered his injury when he was running around on a damp outfield in Queenstown before the third One-Day International (ODI) on January 1. His place has been taken by left-arm spinner Nikita Miller.
"Darren is undergoing treatment and should be fit to return to playing duties in time for the regional Super50 tournament which starts later this month in Trinidad," said West Indies team physiotherapist C.J. Clark.
