St. John's, Antigua, Jun 10 : West Indies has granted Dwayne Bravo's request for a rest by leaving him out of the team that will try to prevent India from winning their one-day international cricket series on Saturday.
Bravo has yet to recover his form following the knee injury which cut short his World Cup in February. He tallied 54 runs and four wickets in the five-match series with Pakistan, then has scored only 22 and 8 against India.
His replacement, Jamaica allrounder Danza Hyatt, could make his one-day debut in the third ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.Fast bowler Kemar Roach is also in to give Ravi Rampaul a break.
Former captain Chris Gayle continues to be overlooked by the selectors until he meets with officials of the team and West Indies board.
West Indies: Darren Sammy (captain), Carlton Baugh, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Kirk Edwards, Danza Hyatt, Anthony Martin, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons. AP
