Bravo bows out in the Caribbean

Sports 10 Aug, 2021 Follow News

Dwayne Bravo had a fantastic 17-year career

Dwayne Bravo has played his last international match in the Caribbean, unfortunately, not bowing out the way the ‘Champion’ wanted.

In the four-match T20I series against Pakistan in Guyana, heavy rainfall prevented three from being played and the second match was won by Pakistan. After an illustrious 17-year career, the 37-year-old all-rounder declared his intention to quit. It’s not clear yet which internationals he will play abroad before retiring completely.

Cricket West Indies said Bravo has been a lion-hearted competitor for West Indies throughout. The highlights of his T20I career are the two World Cup wins - in 2012 on his birthday against Sri Lanka in Colombo, and in 2016 against England in Kolkata.

Trinidadian Bravo is one of the greatest performers in the shortest format, and his bowling at the death is superb.

He is the leading T20I West Indies wicket-taker with 76 in 85 matches. His best figures are 4-19 which came last month against South Africa at the Grenada National Stadium.

Bravo also played 40 Tests (2200 runs and 86 wickets) and 164 one-day internationals (2968 runs and 199 wickets).
