Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn has been called up to replace Sunil Narine in the West Indies One-Day International squad in India.

Narine was withdrawn by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) after being reported for bowling with a suspected illegal action twice during the recent Champions League T20.

He was banned from bowling in yesterday's final, which Chennai Super Kings won, and was then withdrawn from the ODI squad by the WICB.

The spinner will now have his action assessed in Chennai as Benn joins up with the squad ahead of the first match in the five-game series in Kochi on 8th October.

Benn, 33, has played 25 One-Day Internationals, taking 29 wickets at an average of 31.86.

Recalled to the Test team earlier this year, Benn played all three games against New Zealand and both against Bangladesh.

However, he has not played an ODI since March 2011, when the West Indies lost by 80 runs to India in the 2011 World Cup.

West Indies ODI squad: Dwayne Bravo (captain), Sulieman Benn, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Leon Johnson, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Jerome Taylor
