Injured Bravo heads home
West Indies batsman Darren Bravo will play no further part on the tour of England after flying home with a groin problem.
Bravo suffered the injury while fielding during the tourists’ NatWest Series defeat to England at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday and scans revealed the problem was serious. The Windies will not call up a replacement for the 23-year-old.
Chris Gayle, who missed Saturday’s game with a stress reaction to a left shin injury, will have a scan later this afternoon to see if he can play in tomorrow’s game at the Kia Oval.
All-rounder Andre Russell will also go for a scan to see if his shoulder injury has cleared up.
West Indies are 1-0 down in the three-match NatWest Series, having lost by 114 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method at Southampton.
The third game of the series is at Headingley Carnegie on Friday followed by the one-off NatWest International T20 at Trent Bridge on Sunday, which marks the end of the tour.
