West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels will need surgery on a chronic right wrist injury and has been ruled out of their limited overs series in New Zealand, the country's cricket board said on Tuesday.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton, who has played two tests and the same number of one-day internationals, will replace Samuels in the 15-man squad.

"It will require surgery management and he returns home to seek that surgical opinion and advice from the West Indies Cricket Board's medical panel, headed by Dr. Akshai Mansingh," the team's physiotherapist CJ Clark said.

West Indies, who lost the test series 2-0 against New Zealand, will play five ODIs, starting in Auckland on Boxing Day, followed by two Twenty20 internationals.
