Retired Windies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has lamented a lack of opportunity to make a bigger impression at the international level.

The 35-year-old called time on his international career last year, following a 12-year stint with the regional team.  At the time of his retirement, the Trinidadian native had, however, not played Test cricket since 2010 or an ODI game since 2014.  In T20 international’s Bravo had fared a bit better playing his last match against Pakistan in 2016.

During his playing days, Bravo was among a group of senior players that often found themselves at odds with the regional governing body (then WICB) and infamously captained the team that abandoned the tour of India in 2014 over a wage dispute.

The player, however, continued to play T20 League cricket going on to be considered as one of the best all-rounders in the world.

“I could have achieved a lot in international cricket, but it was cut short.  I am happy that I was able to represent West Indies at the international level.   Not too many people get the opportunity to represent their country,” Bravo said.

 “I am fortunate enough to have been a part of the West Indies set-up for more than 12 years.  I enjoyed every moment of it.  I haven’t achieved much (at international level), having not got too many opportunities.  Such is life.  There are some things you don’t have control over.  But my career went on and my brand developed even bigger without playing international cricket because I was able to play around the world and fans welcomed me.”

Lahore Qalandars selected AB de Villiers as first pick in the Pakistan Super League draft and Steve Smith was snapped up by a yet-to-be-named franchise on Tuesday.

De Villiers was the prized selection as a 'Platinum' player for a tournament which gets under way in February.

Mohammad Hafeez, Carlos Brathwaite and Yasir Shah will be among the former South Africa captain's Qalandars team-mates.

Banned ex-Australia skipper Smith was recruited by a 'sixth team' - formerly Multan Sultans - to play alongside the likes of Mohammad Abbas, Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik.

Defending champions Islamabad United brought in former England batsman Ian Bell and secured a return for his compatriot Samit Patel.

Kieron Pollard will play for Peshawar Zalmi, while fellow West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was picked by Quetta Gladiators.

 

Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard talks about the legacy of recently retired star Dwayne Bravo.

Dwayne Bravo this week called time on his international career.  The panel takes a look back at the impact of the talented, effervescent all-rounder.

Former Windies captain Dwayne Bravo has announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket.

Trinidad and Tobago Red Force captain Denesh Ramdin believes the return of the former Windies senior players to the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force bolsters his side’s chances of winning the Regional Super50 competition that bowls off next week.

Windies T20 stars Chris Gayle and Andre Russell will look to take their explosiveness to the game’s shortest format after being drafted for the second edition of the T10 League tournament in Dubai.

Fawad Ahmed was the man that stood between the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and a second consecutive Hero Caribbean Premier League final appearance, and he is hoping he can produce again on Sunday when the Trinbago Knight Riders take on the Guyana Amazon Warriors. 

A half century from Denesh Ramdin and three wickets from Fawad Ahmed ensured the Trinbago Knight Riders would get two opportunities to make the Hero Caribbean Premier League finals for the second season in a row. 

Trinbago Knight Riders can clinch a top-two finish in the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League if they beat the Barbados Tridents at the Queen’s Park Oval on Friday night in Port-of-Spain. 

The Trinbago Knight Riders batted the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots out of their Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) game at Warner Park in Bassettere on Friday, winning by 46 runs. 

After Saturday night’s loss to the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, captain of the Barbados Tridents, Jason Holder has recognized the issue that has left his team just outside of the playoff positions at the moment. 

Trinbago Knight Riders captain Dwayne Bravo pointed to a sense of continuity as a major advantage after registering a crushing win over the St Lucia Stars in their Caribbean Premier League (CPL) opener on Wednesday night.

Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and the Bravo brothers Darren and Dwayne could get back into the Windies squad for the World Cup by performing well in the Regional Super50.  But are we jumping the gun? Their selection could be far from certain.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) CEO Johnny Grave has revealed that a number of top international T20 players, previously involved in much-publicised spats with the board, could put themselves in contention for a spot at next year’s ICC World Cup by taking part in the upcoming regional season.
