West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will miss the first few games of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Bravo, who was retained by the Gujarat Lions, sustained the hamstring injury while playing for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League (BBL) in December.

The 33-year-old had to be stretchered off the field and underwent surgery. Despite it being nearly three months since he suffered his injury while attempting to stop a boundary, Bravo is still on the mend.

“Dwayne Bravo was suffering from hamstring injury from past few months. We are expecting him to join us in India in 1st week of April. He may miss the initial couple of matches,” Lions owner Keshav Bansal told Cricbuzz. “If his health permits, you can see him playing during the second phase of IPL.”

In last year’s IPL, Bravo only scored 99 runs in 15 matches at an average of 12.37, but took 17 wickets at an average of 29.05.
