Pollard, Bravo picked as WC reserves

After missing out on their 15-man squad for the event, all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard have been named on Sunday in West Indies’ list of reserve players for the ICC World Cup 2019.

Bravo’s selection in the 10-man list comes despite him having retired from international cricket in October last year, while Pollard has just returned from a successful Indian Premier League season with Mumbai Indians, who lifted the IPL trophy for a record fourth time. The reserves will participate in a four-day camp in Southampton from May 19 to 23, which also includes an additional warm-up game against Australia on May 22 at The Rose Bowl.

Apart from the star all-rounders, Sunil Ambris and Raymon Reifer, who were a part of the Windies side in the recently-concluded tri-nation series in Ireland, have also been called up as back-ups. While Ambris will be a cover for Ewin Lewis, who has just recovered from a viral illness, Reifer will help in managing the bowling unit’s work-load.
