The batsman was not picked in the playing XI for the first two ODIs and had only played a practice game against
India A on the tour. The WICB is expected to announce a replacement for Simmons in the coming days.

Simmons, who last played a Test for West Indies in 2011, has not been a part of the five-day squad for the last
couple of years but has featured regularly in the limited-overs matches.

The five-match ODI series between India and West Indies was reduced to four matches following the cancellation of the
third ODI in Visakhapatnam due to a cyclone Hudhud. The teams are level at 1-1 after two games.
