Luckless Ambris out of ODIs with broken arm

HAMILTON, New Zealand, CMC – A broken arm has put the luckless Sunil Ambris out of the one-day series against New Zealand starting next week.

The 24-year-old was struck on the forearm by aggressive left-arm seamer Neil Wagner while batting during the second innings of the final Test here yesterday, and was forced to retire hurt on five.

Subsequent x-rays revealed a broken ulna bone in his left arm.

It meant Ambris could not resume his innings as West Indies plummeted to 203 all out and slid a 2-0 defeat in the short series.

The Vincentian has endured a torrid run of luck on his first Test tour, twice dismissed hit wicket in successive Tests in identical fashion, trodding on his stumps as he attempted to turn short balls into the on-side.

All told, he scraped together 25 runs from four innings.

His replacement in the one-day side is expected to be announced shortly.

West Indies clash with New Zealand in three one-day matches in Whangarei and Christchurch from December 20-26.
