Former West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo while taking a u-turn over his retirement, announced comeback to T20 Internationals on Friday (Dec 14). The all-rounder, a veteran of 40 Tests, 164 ODIs and 66 T20Is, had last year said he was retiring from all formats of the game. Reversing his decision, he has now made himself available for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
“I’d be making a return to international T20 cricket. I won’t be playing ODIs or Tests. I want to fully commit myself to the West Indies cricket team and play the T20 World Cup. Due to changes at the administration level (in Cricket West Indies), I think this is the right time to return and contribute to the team. I still believe I’m fit enough to play international cricket. All the administrators, coaches and players can now together work towards uplifting the team,” said Bravo at a press conference.
Bravo had last played for his national side in the shortest format against Pakistan in September, 2016. With Phil Simmons and Kieron Pollard taking over as coach and captain respectively, the 36-year-old feels the Windies can keep improving as a team from here on.
