England all-rounder Alice Capsey has been ruled out of the rest of the West Indies tour with a broken collarbone.

Capsey, 18, sustained the injury after landing awkwardly on her left shoulder attempting to save a boundary during the first one-day international in Antigua on Sunday.

She will now return home to the UK.

England, who won the first match comfortably by 142 runs, will face West Indies in two more ODIs before a five-match Twenty20 series.
