Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo named in West Indies reserve squad for 2019 ICC World Cup

A huge surprise comes its way as Dwayne Bravo has been included in the 10-man reserves list despite him retiring from international cricket in October last year. The list also includes Keiron Pollard, who last played an ODI in October 2016. The latter just returned after a successful season with Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League as MI lifted a record fourth title. 

The 10-man reserves list will participate in a four-day camp in Southampton from May 19 to 23, which includes a warm-up game against Australia on May 22 at the Rose Bowl. "The choice of players in the reserve list is to really cover our bases and ensure we have a good balance in the pool of players that can be selected if replacements are required. We think the skill-set in this pool is strong, with a good blend of experience and upcoming young players who can be ready to contribute if and when required," said the interim chairman of selectors, Roberth Haynes. 

"Due to the commitments and promises made, to both our players and the BCCI, this is the first time that our entire World Cup squad can get together since the IPL finished," he said. "We are confident that these additional five days of training and the extra warm-up game will mean that our players will be ready to perform at their best in our opening match against Pakistan on 31 May."Apart from the duo mentioned above, Sunil Ambris and Raymond Reifer have been included as they were a part of the West Indies side in the recently concluded Tri-Nation Series in Ireland.
