Injury Forces Brown to miss Super50

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

KINGSTON—Leading Jamaican leg-spinner, Odean Brown, will miss the upcoming regional Super50 tournament because of a knee injury. The 31-year-old, a top national player for the past ten years, was on Monday scheduled to undergo surgery on his knee which acted up during a recent training session with the national Super50 and four-day squad. “He (Brown) has been complaining for a while now about his knee and the doctors have advised that surgery is the best thing to do,” said national coach Junior Bennett. “He has a floating bone inside his knee, which whenever he bowls causes discomfort and the hope is that with this operation it will be rectified.”

The surgery is expected to rule Brown out for up to six weeks, excluding him from the limited overs Super50 tournament, scheduled to get under way on January 30 in Trinidad and Tobago.
Brown, who represented West Indies “A” on numerous occasions, has also represented Jamaica in 62 first-class matches, taking 240 wickets at an average of 22.28. Jamaica will be seeking to reclaim the Super50 and Four-day crowns after surrendering both to the Windward Islands and Barbados earlier this year.
