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.

St Lucian National Soccer Star shot in NY

A 27-year-old St Lucian National Player who is part of the squad competing in the Digicel Caribbean Football Tournament in Brooklyn NY, was last Sunday shot and killed in New York.
Just hours after scoring the winning goal that that helped the St Lucia team to the Championships set for this Sunday 5th August,2010, Isidore Phillip Tisson was shot while sitting in a parked vehicle outside a cafe, in the Crown Height section of Brooklyn, where he’d stopped after leaving a nearby nightclub.
Tissons and his teammates following their win at the Thomas Jefferson High School Playing Field, had been celebrating their second entry in 16 years, into the finals of the Caribbean football competition. It was the goal from Tisson that saw his team defeat St Kitts 1-nil to get into the finals against 6 times defending Champions Jamaica.
A single bullet is said to have ripped through Tisson’s head while he was in the company of 24-year-old Shawnette Justin and three other females.
Reports are that the bullet exited Tisson and grazed Justin who was also in the back seat while the soccer star, Justin had to be taken to Brookdale Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
Tisson,  the father of a 3-year-old girl was a center-forward and a substitute for St Lucia National team when they attempt to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.
A grieving St Lucia soccer team have said that they will play Sunday championship match in honor of their slain star player.
A fund has since been set up by officials of the Digicel Cup to assist with Tisson’s burial.
President of the Caribbean Cup, Fred Ballantyne has said that its a major loss to the team and to the league and have asked the community to come out and support the teams for the final championship game.
