Wellington: Leading batsman Darren Bravo has been forced to return home from the West Indies' cricket tour to New Zealand for undisclosed personal reasons.

A team spokesman said 23-year-old Bravo, 23, remained in Auckland after playing in the tourists' two-wicket win in the first one-day game on Thursday and had now returned to Trinidad. A reason for his departure has not been given.

The spokesman said the West Indies would not seek a replacement as they still have a squad of 14 players for the remaining four one-dayers and two Twenty20 internationals.
