12:47 pm on 24 November 2013

The West Indies crciket star Chris Gayle will miss the test series against New Zealand after suffering a hamstring injury in the one day series against India.

A team spokseman says Gayle is returning to the Caribbean for treatment with the view that he will be available for the limited overs series against the Black Caps after Christmas.

The West Indies will not send a replacement player for Gayle to India, but Kraigg Brathwaite will take his place in the squad for the New Zealand tests.
