Bravo eyeing T20 World Cup
CHENNAI – Veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has finally confirmed his willingness to return to international cricket, announcing yesterday his availability for selection to the shortest format, with the Twenty20 World Cup just ten months away.
The 36-year-old announced his retirement 15 months ago, but had in recent times openly flirted with the possibility of a return to the game, following the change of administration in Cricket West Indies, with Ricky Skerritt replacing the controversial president Dave Cameron.
Bravo, still one of the world’s leading T20 franchise cricketers, said that change in CWI leadership had been one of the major reasons for his about-turn.
“They understand and listen, they will have dialogues going back and forth, that’s the difference,” the Trinidadian told ESPNcricinfo.
“And that’s why it was so easy for me to make a decision to come back and represent West Indies again. I speak to the captain (Kieron Pollard), coach (Phil Simmons), the president, director of cricket (Jimmy Adams) and chairman of selectors (Roger Harper), and I’ve confirmed that I’ll be available for T20I selection.”
