Dwayne Bravo to have hamstring surgery; ruled out of BBL 6


Bravo to have hamstring surgery; out of BBL

West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out for the rest of KFC Big Bash League season 6 with a hamstring injury, his Melbourne Renegades club said on Friday.

He was stretchered off during the Renegades’ match against the Perth Scorchers on Thursday night, and subsequent scans revealed the injury would sideline him for an extended period.

“I’ll now have surgery and the rehabilitation to get me fit and playing at my best again,” Bravo said, according to the BBL website.

Bravo was fielding on the boundary when he made a desperate dive to cut off a shot from Michael Klinger and clutched his hamstring in pain.

He was taken from the field on a stretcher after his left leg buckled underneath him as he moved at full pace along the boundary rope.
