Bravo ruled out of England Tests
Dwayne Bravo, the West Indies allrounder, has been ruled out of the Test series against England as he recovers from ankle surgery. It is hoped he will return to action for the one-dayers towards the end of March. Bravo has been out of cricket since he underwent surgery on a long-standing ankle problem last November, which forced him to miss the Stanford Super Series, the one-day series against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, the recent New Zealand tour and the start of the domestic season. "I spoke to Dwayne last week," Clyde Butts, the chairman of selectors, said. "He's started to train about now, and is hoping to be ready about the middle part of the England tour. "He wants to start playing club cricket before he starts playing for Trinidad and Tobago, so he can be fit and ready. Probably, we might see him in the ODIs." Bravo's last appearance for West Indies was against Australia last July and his absence leaves the team without the balance that his all-round skills bring. His younger brother, 20-year-old Darren, has been making the headlines recently with an impressive start to the domestic season. He hit 97 against Barbados before following that with his maiden century against Windward Islands at the weekend.
