Cricket World Cup: Double blow for West Indies` Darren Bravo

Christchurch: West Indies batsman Darren Bravo suffered a painful time in Saturday`s World Cup clash against Pakistan, getting hit on the head before being forced off with a hamstring strain.

Bravo retired hurt on 49 in the 32nd over having suffered a nasty blow to the head seven overs earlier in the game at Hagley Oval.

The 26-year-old Trinidadian was left dazed when a powerful throw from Younis Khan hit him on the side of the helmet as he scrambled through for a single.

He received treatment on the pitch before continuing to bat before eventually leaving the action on a cart with a pulled left hamstring.

Bravo was later taken to hospital for a scan on his injured leg and officials said there were doubts whether he would be fit to play in their next game against Zimbabwe in Canberra on Tuesday.
