Sarwan likely to miss KFC Cup semi-final

Ramnaresh Sarwan, the Guyana captain, is likely to miss out his team's KFC Cup semi-final match against Jamaica on October 25 after he injured his ankle and is expected to be out of action for six weeks.

Sarwan had pulled out of Guyana's previous match against Trinidad and Trinidad on October 20 after he was injured during training. Expressing his disappointment over possibly missing the semi-final, Sarwan told the Guyanan Chronicle, "I trained very hard for this tournament after being out for a while with the shoulder injury and I was hoping to make a big contribution towards Guyana retaining the title."

Earlier this year, Sarwan missed most of West Indies' tour of England - his first series as the national captain - when he injured his shoulder during the second Test at Headingley. "In a game like cricket you expect to pick up an injury here and there but today [Saturday] I was not even playing a match ... just warming up with some touch rugby which I guess is just bad luck for me.

"I am now hoping for some good news from the doctor regarding how soon I can resume training for the Zimbabwe and South Africa tours at year end."
