Harbhajan Singh Pays Tribute to Dwayne Bravo, Who Is Retiring; ‘A Champion Player’
Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh paid respect to West Indies’ great Dwayne Bravo on Saturday, ahead of his last match in Maroon. Harbhajan took to Twitter to wish Bravo luck in his future endeavors and to wish him well in his final international game. Dwayne Bravo declared on Thursday that he will retire from all forms of international cricket following the West Indies’ last game in the 2017 T20 World Cup. Notably, Bravo proclaimed his retirement from all formats of cricket in 2018 but returned to play T20Is in December 2019.
“Self-styled ‘Sir’ and ‘Champion’ Bravo. What you’ve done for us and West Indian cricket is incredible. We, as cricketers, started a trend with West Indies Cricket some 18 years ago, 17 years ago when you made your debut, with me being younger than you and a slew of all-rounders to begin with. You’ve always been a fun and interesting character, and more importantly, a terrific friend. Your contribution to West Indian cricket has been enormous “West Indies captain Kieron Pollard stated this before Bravo’s final game on Saturday.
Bravo made his international debut in 2004 for West Indies. He has played 40 Tests, 164 ODIs, and 89 T20Is since then. The all-rounder has 2,200 runs and 86 wickets in Test cricket and 2,968 runs and 199 wickets in One-Day Internationals. Bravo has 1,243 runs and 77 wickets to his name in T20Is. Bravo was a vital player of the West Indies teams that won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2014 and 2016.
Bravo is now playing in local T20 tournaments throughout the world and will most likely continue to play franchise cricket for the next several years. Bravo entered the T20 World Cup after a stellar season with the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021. The 38-year-old appeared in 11 matches for CSK, taking 14 wickets at an average of 18.78. CSK defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in the tournament’s final, with Bravo taking one wicket in four overs to assist his team win their fourth title.
