Lewis, who played an innings of 176* in the fourth ODI, was stretched off the field in the 47th over of the game when he got hit by a delivery off Jake Ball. He recuperated the Windies’ innings and carried it till the death overs, but an injury to him meant it had an impact on team’s score.

Along with that, he also missed out on a personal milestone as there were chances of him becoming second Windies batsman, after Chris Gayle, to score a double century in an ODI game, but an injury kept Lewis out of the field.

He was a big hope for his side going into the contest, and his exclusion has come as a big loss to the team. Carlos Brathwaite, the T20I skipper, has been called to the side as a cover player. Jason Mohammed got announced as the captain of Windies for the fifth ODI, in the absence of regular skipper.

The fifth ODI – last contest for Windies on this tour  – will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on September 29. England is currently reading the ODI series by a margin of 3-0, with one game washed out during the series.
