Injuries sustained during the VB Series have rendered several West Indian players unavailable for the ongoing Carib Beer Series, the premier domestic competition in the West Indies.
Brian Lara, Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Mervyn Dillon and Ian Bradshaw are among the affected. Lara requires at least three weeks' rest for a blow received to the wrist in his first game of the VB Series. Dillon will see no action for two weeks due to a troubled knee, Bradshaw will rest his injured heel for a fortnight, while Gayle be out of action for three weeks so that his damaged shoulder recovers.
Only Bravo, who shone for West Indies in Australia will participate in games, but will not bowl nor throw, which limits the considerable influence he exerts on the field.
