Bravo seeks to revive international career
SYDNEY— Dwayne Bravo said he hoped his participation in the Big Bash League Twenty20 would spark his revival and spur his return to the West Indies team. The 28-year-old Bravo arrived in Sydney on Monday following a 32-hour journey that started in his native Trinidad and took in stops in St Lucia, London and Bangkok.
Bravo has signed to play for the Sydney Sixers in the revamped Big Bash and wanted to use the four games he will play to tune up for the Caribbean Twenty20 Championship next month. “I definitely want to get back into the Test team, and these four games for the Sixers will set the tone for me in 2012,” he said in an article appearing in the Herald Sun newspaper.
Bravo has played 40 Tests, 117 One-day Internationals and 22 Twenty20 Internationals, but he has not played for West Indies after taking a self-imposed exile from the game following the second One-day International against India last June in Port-of-Spain.
He said players like his younger brother Darren, Kirk Edwards, among others gave him hope that West Indies could become competitive once again on the international scene. “We have lot of young players, but the talent is there,” he said. “Within the next year or two, you will see good improvement and consistency.” The Sixers face the Brisbane Heat in tomorrow’s Big Bash League opener on home soil at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
