Devendra Bishoo replaced injured Dwayne Bravo

Guyana leg spinner Devendra Bishoo will join the West Indies World Cup squad as a replacement for the injured all rounder Dwayne Bravo. West Indies have called up him and ICC's technical committee approved Bishoo for injured player. Bishoo will arrive in Dhaka on 2nd March, ahead of the match with Bangladesh on 4th March. Bravo suffered a major knee injury during the defeat against South Africa; He will be rested for at least four weeks.

Bishoo is the third player in West Indies squad who was replaced as Krik Edwards and Devon Thomas had already replaced Adrian Barath and Carlton Baugh, who were ruled out of the tournament due to hamstring issues. Bishoo was the player of the tournament of Caribbean T20 2010 and also took 10 wickets in the WICB regional 50 over format match last October; He has yet to be opened in One Day International matches.
