Warm-up half century for ODI captain Bravo
West Indies One-Day International (ODI) captain Dwayne Bravo warmed up for the five-match ODI away series against New Zealand starting later this month with a knock of 84 in a practice match at 3Ws Oval on Saturday
Bravo struck six sixes and two fours in his 87-ball innings for Kyle Mayers’ XI who scored 229 for five off 50 overs after they were sent in by Carlos Brathwaite’s XI before rain ended play.
Six members of the West Indies squad—Bravo, Johnson Charles, Jason Holder, Nikita Miller, Ravi Rampaul and Lendl Simmons—not currently taking part in the three-Test series in New Zealand—have assembled in Barbados for a week-long training camp, which ends next Sunday at the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre (HPC) on the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI).
The camp includes a series of training matches against players drawn from Barbados and the HPC.
Simmons was expected to arrive a couple days late for the camp due to personal reasons.
The West Indies, currently trailing 1-0 in the three-match Test series against New Zealand, will also play five ODI matches starting on December 26 (December 25 Caribbean Time) and two Twenty20 matches on January 11 and 15, 2014.
