IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

West Indies sweat on Dwayne Bravo


bravoAn already depleted West Indies are waiting to learn whether their star allrounder Dwayne Bravo will participate in the upcoming limited-overs series against Australia. Bravo, who has been in the country representing Victoria in the Twenty20 Big Bash, broke his right thumb while batting against Tasmania on January 15 and the injury could turn out to be more serious than anticipated.

A West Indies spokesperson told Cricinfo the management was waiting to hear back on test results on Bravo’s finger, and should know tonight or tomorrow morning if he will remain with the squad in Australia or return home.

Bravo has been ruled out of the tourists’ warm-up fixture against the Prime Minister’s XI in Canberra on Thursday.

West Indies have returned to Australia for five ODIs and two Twenty20 internationals after losing a three-Test series in November-December last year. They have arrived without the likes of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan as well as Sulieman Benn, who was suspended for two ODIs for an incident in the Perth Test.

West Indies will use the series to prepare for a home series against Zimbabwe and the World Twenty20 tournament in the Caribbean in April and May.
