West Indies will be without Andre Russell for the decisive ODI with Bangladesh on Saturday due to a knee injury.

The all-rounder featured in the opening game of the three-match series in Guyana, claiming one wicket in a 48-run defeat for the hosts.

But he was not present as the Windies levelled the score three days later and he will again be missing as they look to add the ODI series to the Test whitewash.

Warner Park on St Kitts hosts the final clash with the host naming Sheldon Cottrell as Russell's replacement.

His knee injury is not expected to rule him out of the three Twenty20 internationals that round off Bangladesh's tour, the shortest format being the one Russell has thrived more than any other.
