Bravo returns home from New Zealand

Sunday, December 29, 2013

NAPIER, New Zealand—West Indies batsman Darren Bravo will miss the remainder of the One Day International (ODI) series and Twenty20 matches against New Zealand following his departure from the team due to personal reasons. The left-hander departed Auckland for Trinidad on Saturday, according to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). No further reasons were given for his departure but the WICB said that there will be no replacement for Bravo in the West Indies ODI squad, which has now been reduced to 14.

Bravo scored 14 in the first ODI, which West Indies won in Auckland and an aggregate 262 runs from four innings in the test series including 218 in the first test at Dunedin. Bravo’s absence means Kirk Edwards, who scored seven runs in two innings in the test series and carried the drinks in the first ODI, will likely fill the slot in the top order for the rest of the tour. West Indies take a one-nil lead into the second ODI at Napier on Sunday. (Saturday night Caribbean time).
