ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Windies opener in doubt for fixture against India

By Himanshu Sharma @boringcricket

It’s not been a comfortable tourney for Windies so far and with crucial games coming up they have suffered another blow. Windies opener Evin Lewis pulled his hamstring while fielding in the last outing against New Zealand and is doubtful for India fixture. Lewis came out to bat at number eight but was seen limping.

Bravo or Amris to come in

If Lewis does not recover on time, Windies can turn to Sunil Ambris. Amris is a top-order batsman but Shai Hope can also partner Chris Gayle at the top of the batting order.

Darren Bravo is another in contention. Bravo can give Windies middle-order solidity with Shai Hope moving up to face the new ball.
