Darren Bravo returns home

Social Share

NAPIER, New Zealand – West Indies batsman Darren Bravo will miss the remainder of the One-Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand.
According to a release from the West Indies Cricket Board, the 24-year-old left-hander flew home to Trinidad from the New Zealand Super City of Auckland today due to personal reasons.
Bravo has been one of the more productive batsmen on the current tour to New Zealand and the previous one to India.
In India, he warmed up with 61 and scored three half centuries.
In New Zealand, he scored 40 and 218 in the drawn Test match at Dunedin.
Although he only scored 14 runs in the West Indies’ two-wicket victory in the first ODI, Bravo took three catches, including the first to dismiss opener Jesse Ryder.
There will be no replacement for Bravo in the West Indies ODI squad, which has now been reduced to 14. The West Indies are already without Chris Gayle (hamstring) and Kieron Pollard (knee), while Marlon Samuels had to return home to have surgery after aggravating a wrist injury.
Revised ODI Squad: Dwayne Bravo (captain), Tino Best, Johnson Charles, Narsingh Deonarine, Kirk Edwards, Jason Holder, Nikita Miller, Sunil Narine, Kieran Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Darren Sammy, Lendl Simmons and Chadwick Walton.  (PR/SAT)
