Hurley Out; Drakes In
Thu, May 29, '03
Barbadian off-spinner Ryan Hurley will miss Friday's sixth ODI match against Australia in Grenada because of a shoulder injury. His place in the final eleven will be taken by pacer Vasbert Drakes.
Hurley hurt the shoulder while diving to take a fine catch in the last game but was ruled unfit for Game Six, which shifts to the Queen's Park Stadium in Grenada. Hometown boy Devon Smith will be the 12th man for this game.
The selectors stuck with Jamaican all-rounder David Bernard, who strangely did not get a bowl in the last game even though eight bowlers were used by captain Brian Lara.
