West Indies have added veteran all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard in their 10-man reserve squad ahead of the start of the 2019 World Cup. Both these players were not included in the initial squad that was announced.
Bravo had announced his international retirement after having disputes with the cricket board in 2016.
Bravo last played ODI cricket for his side back in 2014 in a series against India of which he also was he captain of the side.
The Windies decided to leave the series incomplete and return home after they had a disagreement with the board.
Apart from Bravo, Pollard who played his last ODI for West Indies in 2016 has also been included. Pollard, recently won the IPL title with Mumbai Indians.
He also looked in good form with the bat which will keep the management happy.
