Pollard, Roach out T20 defence

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

ST JOHN’S—Top players Kieron Pollard and Kemar Roach will be missing from the West indies team  which will defend the ICC World Twenty20 title from March 16 to April 6 in Bangladesh.
Neither Pollard nor Roach were considered for selection due to continued rehabilitation from injury. Pollard continues to recover from a knee injury sustained late last year, and Roach is still trying to get over a shoulder injury that forced him to return home from the tour of India without playing and required surgery. West Indies, under the leadership of Darren Sammy, who will again lead the team, won the ICC World T20 two years ago, when they toppled hosts Sri Lanka by 36 runs in a thrilling final at the Premadasa Stadium in the Sri Lanka capital of Colombo. There are no major surprises in the 15-man squad.
