West Indies coach Stuart Williams has welcomed the return of pacer Kemar Roach and middle order batsman Darren Bravo to the regional side preparing for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand starting later this month.

Roach was forced to withdraw from the West Indies side during the series in South Africa due to an ankle injury while Bravo opted out of the tour for personal reasons.

The two players are now in Sydney with the rest of the team which suffered tests and One Day International series defeat against South Africa but prevailed in the T20 series.

West Indies play warm-up matches against England on Monday and Scotland next week Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

The former champions will start their World Cup campaign with a game against Ireland on the 5th of March.

“Looking from the South African series, these two guys I hope they bring a different field to the whole team, maybe the spark that we needed in the world cup,” said Williams.

“The guys are looking upbeat and I saw some passion in the past couple of days so they are rearing to go”.

West Indies have been focusing on specific areas during their training such as power play overs, middle overs, batting and bowling.

“Basically we have a couple of days to deal with specifics,” said Williams.

“Obviously we have our general batting and bowling meetings and on the ground we are going to deal with specifics. Power play overs, middle overs, batting and bowling”.

Meanwhile Trin idad and Tobao Ref Force are without a break for lunch.
