Kemar Roach out of first two England ODIs with back injury

Windies will continue to miss fast bowler Kemar Roach for another home fixture against England as the back injury will keep the pacer out of the second ODI too, after he was also out of action in the first fixture on February 20.

Cricket Windies will now hope that the injury isn’t a serious one with Roach being a vital member of the team ahead of the World Cup in England this year.

The 30-year-old experienced campaigner had an outstanding outing against England in the recently concluded Test series, bagging the man of the series award after picking up 18 wickets.

Roach, who has currently played 80 ODIs picking up 114 wickets, will have only the last three ODIs and the tri-series in Ireland to prove his fitness ahead of the mega event. The board has not named a replacement yet for the pacer.
