Dwayne Bravo, who retired from international cricket in October 2018, expressed his desire to don the West Indies colours again after Kieron Pollard was named as the new limited overs captain on Tuesday. The 32-year-old all-rounder takes over the ODI captaincy from Jason Holder, who continues as Test skipper, and T20I leadership from Carlos Brathwaite. After the news broke, Dwayne Bravo didn’t take much time to congratulate Kieron Pollard, posting a few pictures with the tall Trinidad batsman.
“Congratulations my friend @kieron.pollard55 on being appointed WI captain you deserve it and u will be a great leader hopefully I can finally get back in WI colors again. #Champion,” Dwayne Bravo said with laughing emojis, indicating that it could be just a joke.
Bravo’s former West Indies teammate Samuel Badree echoed his sentiments as he commented on the post: “We will make a comeback.”
With the 2020 T20 World Cup approaching, the West Indies don’t want to lose the title that they won in 2016 in India.
After his appointment, Pollard said: “In the short term as Captain, the immediate aim is to defend the T20 World Cup. One of the discussions I hope to have is to bring back the idea of specialists playing in their best positions.
