West Indies star Dwayne Bravo’s BBL season cut short by injury
Melbourne : Dynamic West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out for the rest of Australia’s Twenty20 Big Bash League with a hamstring injury, his Melbourne Renegades club.
Bravo suffered the setback during a loss to the Perth Scorchers on Thursday and scans revealed a serious injury that will require surgery and a long spell on the sidelines.
Bravo was fielding on the boundary when he made a desperate dive to cut off a shot from Michael Klinger and clutched his hamstring in pain.
Bravo was in his fourth season at the Renegades after a stint with the Sydney Sixers.
Bravo scored 23 runs and turned his arm over, taking no wickets for 14 runs on Thursday. In his first match of this BBL season, against Sydney Thunder, he scored 24 runs and took two wickets for 27 runs.
Bravo, who has played 40 tests, 164 one-day internationals and 66 Twenty20 matches for the West Indies.
