Bravo to miss England series
2012-06-18 14:10:58 | (0 Comments)
West Indies batsman Darren Bravo will take no further part in the West Series against hosts England after flying home with a groin injury.
Bravo suffered the injury while fielding during West Indies’ defeat to England at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday and he has now gone home after scans revealed the problem was serious.
The West Indies will not call up a replacement for the 23-year-old.
Hard-hitting Jamaican opener Chris Gayle, who missed Saturday's game with a stress reaction to a shin injury, will have a scan later today, to see if he can play in tomorrow's game at The Oval.
Jamaican all-rounder Andre Russell will also go for a scan to see if his shoulder injury has cleared up.
The West Indies are 1-0 down in the three-match series having lost by 114 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method in the first limited overs encounter at Southampton.
West Indies have been riddled with injury on tour with fast bowlers Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach already forced to return home.
