Darren Bravo ruled out of World Cup with hamstring injury

Shashi / 28 February 2015

The sad news touched the Jamaican team as Darren Bravo, West Indies’ dynamic top-order batsman, has been excluded from the International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup 2015 after suffering an injury to his left hamstring in the match against Pakistan in Christchurch. The 26-year old Trinidadian ripped his hamstring while trying to take a quick single during West Indies’ innings, and eventually had to miss out on the match against South Africa. 

The West Indies Players Association (WIPA) tweeted that Darren Bravo has been excluded from the International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup 2015 and his replacement will be announced shortly.

The Jamaican left-hander had scored 49 runs against Pakistan before he was forced to retire hurt. He had also been left stunned when a powerful throw from Younis Khan hit him on the side of the helmet as he scrabbled through for a quick single.
