Fidel Edwards to miss first two India ODIs

West Indies have named a 13-man squad without Edwards for the first two one-day internationals against India.

The bowler withdrew from last Monday's Super Eight win over England in the Twenty20 World Cup seconds before the toss, after injuring himself in the warm-up.

It was later established that the problem was an impatience of a nerve root in his lower back.

Fidel Edwards didn’t play on Friday in the semi-final at The Oval against Sri Lanka which West Indies lost by 57 runs to exit the competition.

West Indies officials have given no clear indication about how long Edwards is predictable to be out of the game with the injury.

The selectors have rewarded Darren Bravo, the younger brother of all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, with his maiden call for West Indies, after a season of reliable scoring for his native Trinidad & Tobago in domestic competition.

The younger Darren Bravo scored 605 runs at an average of 43.21 in nine matches of the West Indies domestic first-class competition this year.

Team Squad:

Chris Gayle (captain), Denesh Ramdin (vice captain), Lionel Baker, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Sulieman Benn, David Bernard Jr, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Runako Morton, Ravi Rampaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Jerome Taylor
