St. John’s (Antigua): The West Indies selectors have called-up Darren Ganga to replace Brian Lara for the tour of India next month.
Ganga, 23, a right-handed opening batsman, has played 12 Tests scoring 563 runs at an average of 20.85.
He was captain of the West Indies A-team that recently toured England and Canada.
West Indies play three Tests and seven one-day Internationals in India.
Lara was hospitalised with “suspected hepatitis” after scoring 111 against Kenya in a Champions Trophy match in Colombo last week.
