Bravo and Pollard were involved in the Indian Premier League final yesterday, while Narine played in the final of the national Twenty20 Championship in Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday night.

West Indies are scheduled to play two official warm-up matches, against Australia on Saturday and Sri Lanka three days later in Birmingham.

They will open their campaign in Group B of the competition against Pakistan on June 6 at the Oval in London.

West Indies will also face reigning World champions India and South Africa, in the preliminary round.
