Dwayne Bravo, 34, does not see himself making a comeback for West Indies. The all-rounder has been a part of two World T20-winning sides, and back in 2004, he had won the Champions Trophy with the unit led by Brian Lara. Bravo, however, still believes he could contribute to the game by continue playing. He is one of the most sought-after all-rounders in T20 leagues around the world.
“I was dropped while I was fit. I don’t think now, at 34, it would make any sense coming back. I just need to see what is left for me, for my fans to see Dwayne Bravo playing cricket. That is my priority.
“I am looking at these tournaments as a chance to continue playing cricket. As long as I can play cricket, I am happy. As far as internationals are concerned, I have been dropped from the West Indies team,” said Bravo at the T10 league, where he is playing for Maratha Arabians.
Bravo has retired from Tests, and has not played a T20I since September 2016. As for as ODIs are concerned, he hasn’t played any since late 2014, when West Indies abandoned the India tour. He was the captain then.
An injury during the Big Bash League (BBL) in December 2016 saw him being ruled him out of the IPL this year. Playing for Melbourne Renegades, he had to be stretchered off the ground. His absence in IPL was a huge blow for Gujarat Lions (GL) as they failed to qualify for the play-offs. He regained fitness and later played in the CPL and BPL. He led Trinbago Knight Riders (TKK) to their second CPL title.
“I didn’t play for nine months. That is a lot. I missed the game and I have to be careful now. Playing BPL, we made it to the semi-finals. Unfortunately we didn’t make it all the way through, but I am happy to be playing again,” added the Trinidadian champion.
