Another Windies player out

Allrounder Dwayne Bravo, is the latest of the West Indies cricketers to be injured during the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Bravo injured his knee yesterday Thursday during the Windies match against South Africa. Bravo who was bowling at the time, was lead off the field and took no further part in the game. He has now been ruled out for the next four weeks. With this injury it is unlikely that Bravo will be able to take part in the league phase of the tournament.

Bravo’s injury comes on the heels of wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh and opener Adrian Barath, who have had to returned home due to injuries prior to this match.
