Dwayne Bravo, the West Indies allrounder, will undergo surgery on his left ankle in New York after being left out of the Tri-Nation series in Canada because of the injury.

Bravo, who said he had carried the injury for the last two years, earlier planned to have surgery on his ankle in November but decided to move it forward as the problem turned urgent. "I have used painkillers and stuff but I cannot go on like this," Bravo told the Caribbean Media Corporation. Last year he missed the Quadrangular series in Ireland after aggravating the injury.

"I need to have the problem corrected and as such I will be going across to New York to have surgery done on the ankle. I have pushed it to the limit and there is no way I could have continued with the problem persisting."

The surgery was organised by the West Indies board and Bravo is expected to return to Trinidad on Sunday. He will aim to be fit for England's tour of the West Indies starting February 2009.
