According to cricbuzz West Indies Dwayne Bravo is replaced by Romario Shepherd for their upcoming tour of New Zealand. The 37-year-old all-rounder suffered a groin injury while playing for Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) which subsequently ruled him out of the tournament.
Bravo : “I was really looking forward to the tour of New Zealand as it has been so many months since I last wore maroon in Sri Lanka back in March and we are all so excited about building towards defending our T20 World Cup next year,”.
“Unfortunately, the injury I sustained on Saturday playing for CSK has not only ruled me out of the IPL but also the tour. I’m making arrangements to return to Trinidad over the next few days where I will continue my rehab and treatment. I’m fully committed to representing the West Indies and I just need to get myself stronger again,”.
Romario Shepherd : “This is a great opportunity for me, and I want to take it with both hands. I was in the team before, last year and earlier this year, so I have a good feel of the game at this level. I’ve been training hard and working at all areas of my game so I’m ready,”.
