Dwayne Bravo



Dwayne Bravo is developing into a genuine all-rounder, Bravo is expected to play a significant role as the West Indies attempt to return to international cricket prominence. Bravo is an exciting right-handed batsman and right-arm medium-fast bowler who has already become one of the West Indies' more reliable one-day bowlers, able to contain batsman towards the end of the innings.

Bravo adds a new dimension to West Indies cricket his electrifying fielding. His diving, catching and other acrobatic exploits bring energy to the West Indies fielding. Bravo has also developed a reputation for breaking partnerships he has an uncanny abilty to produce a piece of magic when all seem lost. 

This was evident in the Second Digicel 2006 ODI at Sabina Park against India, In the face of mounting tension, Bravo bowled Yuvraj Singh as West Indies snatched a tense one-run victory over India with two balls remaining to level the Digicel One-Day International Series.

On the West Indies tour of Australia in 2005, Dwayne Bravo was controversially not picked for the first Test at Brisbane in which the West Indies were beaten convincingly. Bravo was recalled for the second Test in Hobart and in the Australians first innings he took 2/96. But his biggest contribution was in the West Indian second innings in which he made a superb 113, after coming in at a very difficult stage for the West Indies. 

Dwayne Bravo is perhaps the best symbol of the West Indian cricket spirit of this curent cricket generation. Always willing to go deep within to pull off something spectacular when it is most critical. The cricket World Cup should be his stage, it doesn't get any more crictical than this.
