Dwayne Bravo announced his retirement from all international cricket in October 2018, turning all his focus towards playing franchise T20 cricket all over the world.
Dwayne Bravo was also part of Maratha Arabians, who recently won the T10 League title in Abu Dhabi.
Bravo made his T20I debut against New Zealand in February 2016. He played 66 T20Is and claimed 55 wickets with an average of 28.26 while scoring 1100+ runs with an average of 24.29.
Dwayne Bravo talked about his plans after coming out of retirement:
Bravo spoke about the new management, saying that “they understand and listen,” which made it easy for him to make a decision to come back and represent his country once again.
“If Russell is back, myself, and Narine is back… We don’t know what the Universe Boss is doing but you never know, he can also be available. We will love to have him around as he’s a father figure for all of us and we respect him. Having a Chris Gayle in the team is always special, but it’s up to him to make his decision. But, like I said, we’re looking forward to put the squad together. Whenever we put an XI on the field, it will be an XI that people will come to watch.” Bravo said.
West Indies will play their next T20I series against Ireland in January next year.
