Dwayne Bravo, the West Indies allrounder, has returned home to the Caribbean and will miss the entire five-match one-day series in Pakistan.

A brief statement from the management said that Bravo had "sought and received the permission of the selectors to return home to be with persons close to him who are unwell" and flew back home on Friday night.

Bravo has been replaced by Corey Collymore for the series. Collymore, 28, was part of the Test squad but was not originally included in the ODI squad. He travelled with the side from Karachi to Islamabad.

Bravo's departure follows that of Ramnaresh Sarwan, the vice-captain, who was forced out of the tour after sustaining a hairline fracture in his right foot while batting on the last day of the final Test at Karachi.

Ian Bradshaw, Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Smith have also joined the squad for the ODI series which begins on Tuesday at Rawalpindi.
