Colombo: West Indies opener Adrian Barath and wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh junior are injury doubts for their World Cup clash against South Africa, a team spokesman said.

"Both players are struggling with hamstring injuries and had scans. The outlook is not good. If replacements are required they will be named in the next few days," a West Indies media spokesperson told a website.

Baugh retired out on 29 during the warm-up match with Sri Lanka and Darren Bravo was required to keep wicket during Sri Lanka`s chase.

Barath did not take any part in that game.

West Indies begin their World Cup against South Africa in New Delhi on February 24.
