Dwayne Bravo announces T20 International comeback

West Indies cricketer Dwayne Bravo, who took international break from all formats after the fall out with West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) in 2018, has reversed his decision and made himself available for selection in the Windies Twenty-20 International (T20I) squad for any upcoming series. 

Former West Indies captain, however, confirmed that he didn't want to play any other format.

"Today I confirm the announcement of my decision to return to International Cricket to all my fans and well-wishers all around the world. It's no secret that this big announcement has come as a result of the changes made at the administration level," Bravo said in the press release.

"For a while now, I have been contemplating my return to international cricket and my decision was solidified by these positive changes. With the current leadership of coach Phil Simmons and captain Kieron Pollard I'm really excited about this come back and about the chance to be part of something really special," he further added.

The 36-year old allrounder praised the young talent in the West Indies squad and said that they can again get back on top in the T20Is ranking if his experience is added alongside the other seniors.

He added, “With a powerful team such as ours we can definitely rebuild the WI T20I cricket team on and off the field and improve our rankings. I will remain fully committed to the WI T20 team once selected. Thank you to all my fans and supporters for your continuous support as always.”

The Trinidadian cricketer had called time on his international career in October 2018, and started playing franchise T20 cricket around the world. He last played international cricket in September 2016, a T20I against Pakistan in the UAE.

Bravo has featured in 66 T20Is for the Windies. He has scored 1142 runs in T20Is and bagged 52 wickets to go with it.
