Cricket West Indies (CWI) will be closely monitoring the health of all-rounder Dwayne Bravo as he works for a speedy recovery from a groin injury sustained while playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) against the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League on Saturday.
The injury is not only a concern for CSK but for CWI, whose selectors picked the 36-year-old Trinidadian in their T20 squad to travel to New Zealand next month. As such, the regional board is keen to be in the know about his rehabilitation.
“We are in contact with him and the CSK medical team, so we are being kept updated with his treatment and recovery,” CWI CEO Johnny Grave told Sportsmax.TV on Sunday.
Meanwhile, CSK have said they do not have a timeline for the recovery of the veteran player.
“He seems to have a right groin injury, I think, and it was obviously serious enough to keep him off the field,” CSK head coach Stephen Fleming explained at the post-match press conference on Saturday.
“He will have to be reassessed going forward, but at this stage, you’d imagine it’s going to take a few days or a couple of weeks.”
Bravo had arrived for IPL duty in the UAE with an entirely different injury, a knee problem sustained during this season’s CPL. He missed the Super Kings’ first three games, as the team had decided to take extra caution. (SportsMax)
