T20 World Cup 2014: India elect to bowl against West Indies

India won the toss and elected to bowl against West Indies in their second Super 10 Group 1 match at the World T20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

India remain unchanged for this side. West Indies play their first game today and look a well-balanced.

West Indies captain Darren Sammy said, “We feel very ready as a team having prepared very well. They are a good bunch of boys and we enjoy playing against them.

“We would look to put the runs on the board like Pakistan. We have two spinners in the side, Narine and Badree. Ravi, Fletcher, Cotterell miss out and one more name I forgot.”

India captain MS Dhoni said, “We tend to relax as there is no reason why we should be tensed as of now, but once the game starts, things will be different.

“We are looking to bowl first. There is a bit of dew around, but it’s not alarming though. We are playing with the same squad.”

West Indies captain Darren Sammy said, “We are going to bat first. We bat well and it gives us a good chance here.

“The pitch is similar to the one we played against Australia. We are playing the same team.

West Indies T20 World Cup 2012 Squad

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has announced 15-man squad for the International Cricket Council’s World T20 Tournament in Sri Lanka in September.

Darren Bravo makes a return after missing the second half of the West Indies tour of England and the Series at home against New Zealand due to injury.

The batting is led by Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard who are destructive in this format. Openers Lendl Simmons, Johnson Charles and Dwayne Smith have also done well for West Indies in the past at the top of the order.

Darren Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell and Marlon Samuels, have all proven their quality with bat and ball in this format, while wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin brings a wealth of experience.

The spin bowling department is led by Sunil Narine, who played brilliantly in the IPL and has excelled since his international debut last December.

The other slow bowler is experienced leg-spinner Samuel Badree, who is the newest member of the squad, but has an excellent track record in this format at domestic level.

The two main fast bowlers in the squad are the experienced Fidel Edwards, who offers firepower, and Ravi Rampaul, who can be called upon at any stage in the innings.

Daniel Vettori ruled out of second test against West Indies

New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori has been ruled out from the second test against West Indies due to a right adductor strain.

Vettori suffered the grade one injury on day three of the Test and will now undertake a rehabilitation period that rules him out of final match.

New Zealand Physiotherapist, Paul Close, said “Dan (Daniel Vettori) had some discomfort while in the field on day three of the first Test match with assessment confirming an adductor injury.

“It was managed during the match but further assessment has indicated he will not be fully fit in time for the next Test.

“Dan will return to New Zealand where here will be monitored closely and undergo a period of rehabilitation.

“He will require a rest from bowling and his return date will be determined by how well he responds to the treatment.”

West Indies name 30-man squad for T20 World Cup 2012

West Indies have named provisional 30-member squad for the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 to be staged in Sri Lanka in September.

West Indies have been drawn with Australia and Ireland in Group-B of the competition.

The squad will be trimmed to a final 15 players next month.
