West Indies’s blow as Barath & Baugh uncertain for World Cup

A latent double blow for tarnished West Indies, opener Adrian Barath and Wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh are in uncertainty condition for the World Cup due to Hamstring injuries. Both players are struggling with hamstring injuries and had scans. Their outlook is not fine; however both had travelled with their team from Colombo. There is no news regarding their replacements. If replacements are necessitated they will be announced in the next few days.

Adrian Baugh retired out on 29 during the warm-up match against Sri Lanka whereas Darren Bravo was taken responsibilities of wicket keeping during Sri Lanka chasing. Adrian Barath did not participate in that game. Batsman Kirk Edwards and wicketkeeper Devon Thomas were among the reserves named for the World Cup and could be planned if Barath and Baugh are ruled out. West Indies also have Devon Smith in the 15-man squad who can open the innings if Barath is excluded. Kieron Pollard, who was out of both warm-up games due to side strain, was declared vigorous. West Indies will play their opening World Cup match against South Africa in Delhi on 24th February.
