Miller replaces Narine in Windies World Cup squad

TRINIDAD: Left-arm spinner Nikita Miller will replace Sunil Narine in the West Indies squad for next month´s World Cup, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said.

Off-spinner Narine, who was reported for a suspect action during the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in September, has withdrawn from the squad, saying he needed more time to bowl confidently with his remodelled action.

Miller, 32, has taken 40 wickets in 45 One Day Internationals, the last match being against England last March.
