IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Darren Bravo included for first two ODIs


bravoDarren Bravo, brother of allrounder Dwayne, has earned a maiden West Indies call-up for the first two one-day internationals against India later this month. With Fidel Edwards recovering from a lower back injury and unavailable for selection, the selectors called up allrounder David Bernard in his place.

A left-hand batsman, Darren Bravo scored 605 runs at 43.21 for Trinidad & Tobago in the domestic four-day competition. He was part of the West Indies Under-19 team that played in the 2008 World Cup.

Narsingh Deonarine, another left-handed batsman, has also been included. He was the leading run-scorer in the four-day competition with 1,068 runs at 59.33 with seven half-centuries. Deonarine last played an ODI in 2007.

Bernard, 27, last played an ODI in 2003 but was part of the ICC World Twenty20 squad. Other notable exclusions from West Indies’ last ODI assignment, against England in May, are Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy and Dale Richards.

The first two ODIs are on June 26 and 28 in Kingston.

West Indies: Chris Gayle (capt), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Lionel Baker, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Sulieman Benn, David Bernard, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Runako Morton, Ravi Rampaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Jerome Taylor.
