Defending champions West Indies will be without Kieron Pollard for next month’s World Twenty20 in Bangladesh after the big-hitting all-rounder failed to recover from a knee injury.

A shoulder injury has also ruled fast bowler Kemar Roach out of the 15-man squad, which will be led by all-rounder Darren Sammy.

“Neither Kieron Pollard nor Kemar Roach were considered for selection due to continued rehabilitation from injury,” the West Indies Cricket Board said in a statement.

“Pollard continues to recover from a knee injury sustained late last year and Roach is still trying to get over a shoulder injury that forced him to return home from the tour of India without playing and required surgery.”
