London - Leicestershire captain Ramnaresh Sarwan has been obliged to return home to the West Indies in order to recover from a back injury, the English county announced on Wednesday.

"I am naturally very disappointed to have had my season cut short at Grace Road this season," said Sarwan, 34, who has has played just five times in the County Championship this year.

"I am confident that this time to recuperate and undergo my rehab will give me the best possible chance of representing the West Indies in next year's ODI World Cup and I have my eyes set on returning to county cricket in 2015."

New Zealand veteran Scott Styris will replace Sarwan in Leicestershire's squad for the domestic 50-over cup competition the Royal London One-Day Cup after agreeing to extend his stay with the club.
