West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will play no part in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he is still undergoing rehabilitation for a hamstring injury.
Bravo, who was supposed to play for the Gujarat Lions, sustained the injury while representing the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League (BBL) on December 29.
Bravo subsequently underwent surgery and has been out of action ever since.
“No Dwayne Bravo. He’s been doing proper rehab and it might take three-four weeks, so he might be out of the tournament,” Lions captain Suresh Raina said prior to his side’s match against the Kings XI Punjab.
A few hours after the match, Bravo issued a statement confirming that he will not play in the IPL this year.
“While recovery is going well and I have made vast improvement and have participated in team trainings with the Lions, my body is not ready to perform at its fullest potential,” Bravo said.
