New Delhi - West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will undergo a scan on Friday after falling and hurting his left knee while bowling in his team's World Cup opener against South Africa.
Bravo, 27, who scored a quickfire 40 in the West Indies total of 222, fell clutching his left knee on his follow-through after bowling just 2.1 overs and was helped from the field. Kieron Pollard completed the over.
"He took no further part in the game," said West Indies spokesman Philip Spooner.
"He will probably sleep uncomfortably tonight but tomorrow we will take him for a scan."
Spooner said it was too soon to judge how serious the injury was.
Time for the playoffs
As I write this, we’re just a few hours out from our playoff game against the Mumbai Indians.
