Dwayne Bravo Out of World Cup with Knee Injury
Saturday, 26 February 2011

West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out of the World Cup with a knee injury, the team spokesman said on Friday.

Bravo had sustained the injury during Thursday's World Cup defeat by South Africa.

"He is out of the World Cup. The MRI revealed cartilage damage to the left knee," the spokesman said.

"He is out for at least four weeks. We will name the replacement after getting the approval from the International Cricket Council."

Bravo slipped on his follow-through while bowling and was seen lying on the pitch clutching his knee before he hobbled off the ground with his arms around the shoulders of two team mates.

He did not take any more part in the match that his team lost by seven wickets.

West Indies already have lost opener Adrian Barath and wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh through injuries.
