DJ Bravo’s availability will assuredly excite many West Indies Cricket fans both in the Caribbean and around the world where they will wait to see if he can add to the 66 T20I appearances he made in his career. He has scored 1,142 runs and taken 52 wickets, since his first T20I match in 2006. His last game for the West Indies was against Pakistan in September 2016.

According to Windies Cricket President Skerritt:
“Bravo has the performance track record that should never have been lost from the West Indies cricket talent pool. One of the reasons Dr. Shallow and I sought the Presidency was to review the team selection policy to become completely inclusive and to ensure that selection is based strictly on merit and performance readiness. Bravo’s return reminds us what a negative impact politics and pettiness has had on our cricket. The possibility that Bravo, a former West Indies captain, can again be a fierce and formidable all-rounder in his maroon colours, is a welcomed possibility.”
“I am pleased that Dwayne is making himself available for selection for T20 cricket. His considerable experience and proven ability will strengthen the pool of players from which CWI will be able to choose their squads whilst also providing increased competition for places.”
