Legendary West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has confirmed that he will hang his boots from international cricket after the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The all-rounder has been an integral part of West Indies’ rich success in the shortest format in the last decade.
The decision came after West Indies went down against Sri Lanka in the Super 12 fixture of the ICC T20 World Cup. Bravo, who has won three ICC titles for his nation, stated that he is honoured to represent his country for 18 long years.
Speaking at the end of the game, Dwayne Bravo said:
“I think the time has come. I’ve had a very good career. To represent the West Indies for 18 years, had some ups and downs, but as I look back at it I’m very grateful to represent the region and the Caribbean people for so long.”
“To win three ICC trophies, two with my captain (Daren Sammy) on the left here. One thing I am proud about is that the era of cricketers we had we were able to make a name for ourselves on the global stage and not only do that but have silverware to show for it,” Dwayne Bravo added.
“We should keep our heads high” – Dwayne Bravo on West Indies’ campaign in T20 World Cup
Dwayne Bravo reckons the competition did not go as per their plans. However, he believes the players should not feel sorry for themselves after their underwhelming performance. They have just won one match so far in the competition.
“It wasn’t the World Cup we expected, it wasn’t the World Cup we wanted as players. We shouldn’t feel sorry for ourselves, it was a tough competition, we should keep our heads high,” he concluded.
