Bravo: Decision not to play for T&T not easy
West Indies all rounder Dwayne Bravo says his decision not to play for T&T in the upcoming regional T20 series was a tough one and he hopes his absence and that of fellow all rounder Keiron Pollard can create an opportunity for two young players to come forward. Bravo and Pollard will miss the regional T20 series, as they will head for Australia to participate in the Australian Big Bash for Victoria and South Australia respectively. Speaking to the Trinidad Guardian, Bravo said : “The decision by us not to play for T&T was a tough one, as we remain committed to T&T’s cricket. However, with Pollard and myself not being there I hope that two young players can step up to the plate and make a name for themselves.”
Bravo said what made their decisions easier was the fact that both he and Pollard got the support of the local board. “We felt a lot better by the fact that we got the support of the board and we wish T&T all the best in the tournament.” Bravo added that he sees no reason why T&T cannot go on to win the tournament starting on January 10 in Antigua.
“I see no reason why T&T cannot go on and win the tournament and make up for the disappointment of the 2010 season. We really did not have a good season and the guys should keep this in mind and go out there and play their hearts out. “The team has to fight hard, remain focus and go out there and win the title and this would set up the year ahead very nicely for T&T. I will be following the exploits of the team very closely from Australia and will be in touch with the team giving my support.”
