West Indies will monitor the condition of all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who has a virus, before naming their team for the third Test against India, which starts on Thursday.

The teams meet at Warner Park, Test cricket’s newest venue, with the four-match series at 0-0.

Bravo, who did not train on Wednesday, has enjoyed success with bat and ball on the tour.

He followed up a haul of four wickets for 40 with a polished half century in the first Test in Antigua and then helped rescue West Indies in St Lucia with a patient 47, ably supporting captain Brian Lara (120) as the home side pulled off a draw.

Veteran fast bowler Glenn McGrath is likely to resume his position in Australia’s line-up ahead of the Ashes series against England following his wife’s recovery from illness, reports said on Wednesday.

McGrath, the most successful Test fast bowler with 542 wickets, has not played a game of cricket since his wife Jane was again diagnosed with cancer on February 3.

But the 36-year-old said his wife, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 and has had three further recurrences of the disease, was now very close to being back to 100 percent.

Ricky Skerritt, the St. Kitts and Nevis Sports Minister and former West Indies manager, flew Atkinson into the island last week to ensure that the surface for the crucial match would be up to standard.

Sachin Tendulkar began his comeback from shoulder surgery at Fenners — Cambridge University’s ground — by scoring a 91-ball hundred for the Lashings World XI in a match against the university.

Tendulkar, who had the operation in March, opened the innings and was greeted with a loud cheer from a crowd close to 1000. The reception from the students was less welcoming, the first ball fizzing past his head.
