Darren Bravo, born on February 6, 1989, is a West Indies batsman from Trinidad. He is the younger half-brother of West Indies teammate Dwayne Bravo. He is also the first cousin once removed of West Indies legend Brian Lara. He plays primarily as a top-order batsman for the West Indies.

He made his One-Day International (ODI) debut for West Indies on June 26, 2009, against India at Kingston in Jamaica. Darren made his Test debut for West Indies on November 15, 2010, against Sri Lanka at Galle. He scored 58 runs in his first innings. He is also an occasional wicketkeeper. He donned the gloves for West Indies during the ICC World Cup 2011. Darren Bravo’s technique and style has been compared to that of Lara.

In the English County Championship, Darren plays for Nottinghamshire. Darren scored his first Test century in October 2011 against Bangladesh at Dhaka. It was his 10th Test for the West Indies. He was eventually dismissed for 195 in his debut century knock. He struck 12 fours and five sixes.

As of February 6, 2014, Darren has played in 27 Tests for West Indies and scored 2,011 runs at an average of 44.68. He has scored five centuries and eight half-centuries with a highest of 218. Darren has played in 69 ODIs for West Indies as of February 6, 2014. He has scored 1,861 runs at an average of 32.64. Bravo has scored only one century in addition to 15 half-centuries with a highest of 100 not out.

He plays for Trinidad and Tobago in all domestic competitions in the Caribbean. Although Darren Bravo’s career has shown a lot of promise, he has not exactly lived up to the expectations. He has age on his side and the talent is there for everyone to see. So, we may still see some fine displays from him in the future.
