West Indies batsman Darren Bravo has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2015 World Cup following the hamstring injury that he sustained during the match against Pakistan at Christchurch.

Bravo, who made 49 with the bat against Pakistan, suffered the injury while completing a single following which he was forced to retired hurt.

The 26-year-old, consequently missed his team’s matches against Zimbabwe and South Africa, failing to show satisfactory progress from the injury.

Though the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is yet to make a formal announcement regarding the replacement, speculation is rife that batsman Johnson Charles may get the nod.

Charles, who last played in January 2014, has represented West Indies in 30 One-Day Internationals aggregating 869 runs at an average of 28.96.

West Indies play their next World Cup match on 6th March at Perth where they take on the defending champions, India.
