Dwayne Bravo set to return on Thursday
Colombo, Sri Lanka – All-rounder Dwayne Bravo is available for the 2nd ERI One-Day International against Sri Lanka on Thursday, after being rested for the series-opener. The 27-year-old, who has made 107 ODI apperances for the West Indies, missed Monday’s opening match due to a slight knee niggle.
The match was a no-result after rain washed out the second half after the West Indies made 245-5 off their 50 overs.
Bravo trained on Tuesday at the Sinhalese Sports Club and Wednesday at the Nondescripts Cricket Club with the rest of the squad without any discomfort.
“We were a little cautious before the first match and the physio C.J. Clark said we should give him a little bit more time,” said West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson.
“He has taken part in the training session fully and he has done everything that has been asked of him. He comes into the reckoning for Thursday’s match. From the nets everybody is looking really good and we had some good batting in the first match so we are pleased with the way it’s going.”
First ball in Thursday’s match is 9.30 am (12 midnight Eastern Caribbean Time/11 pm Wednesday Jamaica Time).
