CRICKET: Narine to have scan done on leg injury

Published:Monday | March 10, 2014 | 1:51 PM

West Indies captain Darren Sammy has revealed that key bowler Sunil Narine may require scans on a leg injury he suffered during the Caribbean side’s 27-run win over England in the first Twenty20 International in Barbados yesterday.

Sammy says the physiotherapist is monitoring Narine very closely.

Sammy further says from early report the injury doesn’t look like ligament damage.

Narine injured his right knee as he slid while chasing a ball in the outfield.

Meanwhile, the West Indies will not have to contend with Stuart Broad for the remainder of the Twenty20 series.

Broad is also suffering from an injury.

Broad says he has been managing a knee problem with injections over the winter and he will rest to ensure his fitness for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh later this month.

Broad disclosed he was suffering from patellar tendonitis rest after the West Indies easily won the first Twenty20 game yesterday at Kensington Oval.

He says the injury flared up during the third One-Day International in Antigua.

Broad conceded that an operation may be required at some point.

The second match will take place tomorrow and the third and final on Thursday.

Both matches will also be played at Kensington Oval.
