Kingston: Pacer Ravi Rampaul was on Tuesday replaced by Jason Holder in the West Indies cricket team for the second leg of the ODI tri-series against India and Sri Lanka after he sprained his ankle in the opening game.

West Indies, who have beaten both India and Sri Lanka in their first two matches here, will now travel to Port of Spain in Trinidad for the second half of the tournament.

Rampaul did not play the team's second match, against India, along with skipper Dwayne Bravo, who was nursing a groin injury but is expected to be fit for the upcoming matches starting with the one against India on Friday.
