Bravo ruled out of IPL, calls it one of his hardest decisions


Rajkot : Gujarat Lions on Sunday suffered a setback as West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, so crucial to the franchise’ plans, was ruled out of the 10th edition of Indian Premier League.

Bravo is yet to fully recuperate from his left hamstring surgery after sustaining an injury in December during the Big Bash League.

The Gujarat franchise was expecting him to get fit during the later part of the League as he was travelling with the team while undergoing rehabilitation.

Bravo suffered the injury while fielding for Melbourne Renegades – his BBL team – against Perth Scorchers on December 29.

“This is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in my career but I do believe withdrawal from this season of the IPL will allow me to perform at my best later on in the year,” Bravo said in a statement.

“I wish the Gujarat Lions team all the very best for the remainder of the campaign. I thank everyone for the love and encouragement and look forward to returning to the pitch.”–PTI
