The West Indies Cricket Board has advised that allrounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out of the ongoing tour of Australia. Wavell Hinds, the Jamaican left-handed batting allrounder, has been named as the replacement.

Bravo failed to recover from a finger injury and will not be able to participate in the limited-overs series, which will include five One-Day Internationals and two T20 Internationals. He sustained a damaged right thumb last month and will require additional time to recover.

He will return to Trinidad to continue his rehabilitation and is expected to be fit for the Digicel Series (West Indies v Zimbabwe) which starts on February 28.

    Alas, for so long you had to come back on West Indies team. It had to take injury to bring you back. He has real talent!!!! I wish him God’s Blessing and hope he is retained for the next series and that he performs well.
