WC 2019: Bravo, Pollard in WI squad as reserve players

All-rounders Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo have been included in the list of 10 reserve West Indian players for the upcoming World Cup 2019. After having missed out on selection for the marquee event, Pollard might still find his World Cup dream realised if he is called as a replacement for an injured player.

Though the selection of Bravo, who had announced his retirement from international cricket in October 2018, looks like WI are looking to use his experience as a learning tool for the relatively younger players in the squad.

West Indies will continue their preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with a training camp in Southampton, England from May 19 to 23. The four-day camp, involving the entire 15-man squad for the marquee tournament, will include an additional warm-up fixture against Australia, which will be played on 22 May at the Ageas Bowl, the home of Hampshire County Cricket Club.
