Miller to replace Narine for World Cup

ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Seasoned left-arm spinner Nikita Miller has been named to replace Sunil Narine in the West Indies World Cup squad.The 32-year-old Jamaican has not played for West Indies in nearly a year but has the experience of 45 One-Day Internationals, wherein he has taken 40 wickets.

In the recent Super50 tournament, Miller took just six wickets at an average of 15, as Jamaica went out in the semifinals.
Narine was named in the World Cup squad earlier this month but pulled out on Tuesday, citing the need to continue work on his bowling.
The champion off-spinner has been doing remedial work on his bowling ever since being reported for having a suspected illegal action during the Champions League Twenty20 in September last year.
West Indies are currently en route from South Africa to the World Cup, which is set to bowl off in Australia and New Zealand next month.
They have been installed in Group B which includes Ireland, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, South Africa, India and United Arab Emirates.
The World Cup runs from February 14 to March 29.
