In-form West Indies batsman Darren Bravo has been ruled out of Thursday's penultimate one-day international against India with a hamstring problem, the team's captain Darren Sammy said.

Stylish left-hander Bravo retired hurt when on 26 during the third ODI in Ahmedabad on Monday, which the tourists won to stay afloat in the series 2-1.

“Darren Bravo is out for the next game,” said Sammy. “Like we showed when Shiv (Shivnarine Chanderpaul) missed a test (in Mumbai), young (Kieran) Powell came in and took responsibility.”

Powell, who replaced Chanderpaul in the team, made the most of his opportunity

and hit a solid 81 in the first innings of the final test in Mumbai, which ended in a thrilling draw with both sides on level scores.

“Yes, we will miss Bravo in the line-up. But it gives an opportunity for someone else to come out and make a name for himself,” Sammy said. “Our team is definitely improving, when we miss guys, the guys come in and perform.”
