Sarwan hit by further injury blow
Ramnaresh Sarwan
Sarwan was only just coming back from a foot injury
Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan has been ruled out for another three weeks with a hand injury, dealing a blow to West Indies' World Cup preparations.

Sarwan, 26, chipped a bone in his right thumb after being hit by a bouncer from Fidel Edwards in a domestic match.

He was only just recovering from a foot injury that saw him miss the recent one-day series in India.

"I am very disappointed. I was looking forward to preparing for the World Cup," Windies vice-captain Sarwan said.

Sarwan has scored 3,724 runs in his 115 ODIs, although he struggled for form late last year and was dropped from the Test side in Pakistan.

In his absence, West Indies have won just two of eight matches against Pakistan and India.

The World Cup hosts have warm-up matches against Kenya and India before opening the tournament against Pakistan in Jamaica on 13 March.
