Dwayne Bravo Has No Regrets As He Retired After Representing West Indies For 18 Years At Int’l Level

Dwayne Bravo said: ”Thanks, almighty God for the talent he blessed me with and also to represent the West Indies for 18 years. For me, cricket has always been my childhood dream and I wanted to represent the region, follow in the footsteps of my childhood hero Brian.”

Dwayne Bravo added: “It’s good I was able to have a successful career. I am happy to leave the game at this period, I have no regrets. Having said that, my last time, I want to make sure I want to finish off on a high. I want to do it for my team.”

Dwayne Bravo made his T20I debut in 2006 and went on to represent the West Indies in 91 games in the shortest format. He also featured in 40 Tests and 164 ODIs in a career that spanned nearly 18 years. He scored 1,245 runs at an average of 22.23 and a strike rate of 115.38. He also picked up 78 wickets with his medium-fast bowling and was effective with his variations in the death overs.

He has more than 500 appearances in the T20 format overall. After making his international debut in 2004, Dwayne Bravo also played in 40 Tests, scoring 2200 runs at an average of 31.42 and taking 86 wickets. He also has 2968 runs and 199 wickets to his name from 164 ODIs.

Dwayne Bravo Announced Retirement From Int’l Cricket

After the defending champions officially got knocked out of the competition, Dwayne Bravo announced his retirement from international cricket following the fixture against Sri Lanka in the ongoing T20I World Cup.

In an official statement, he 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.”

He added: “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 the silverware to show for it.”

Dwayne Bravo would have loved to go out with a bang with the bat in his final international outing, but the charismatic cricketer could only manage a 12-ball 10 against Australia. The all-rounder had a poor outing in the T20 World Cup as he managed just 26 runs in five innings while claiming only two wickets.

Defending champion of the last T20I World Cup in 2016, West Indies was surprisingly eliminated from semifinal contention after losing to Sri Lanka. Their batsmen comprising of many power hitters failed when it mattered.

Bravo has played all the T20 World Cups since 2007 and has helped his side win the title in 2012 and 2016. He came out of retirement in international cricket in December 2019 to help his side retain the World T20I title.
