PSL draft set for November 12 with top names in the fray
Johnson, Lynn, Bravo and Duminy have been added to the picks, joining an already star-studded line-up
A motivational asset to any side, Dwayne Bravo, the energetic allrounder, perhaps more than anyone else epitomises the spirit of West Indies cricket with the excitement and flair he brings to the game.
He is a livewire in the field – quick over the ground and a dazzling catcher in any position – and is always armed with a healthy bag of tricks when sending down his eclectic medium-pace.
Bravo gives no less with the bat and for several years moulded himself into the region’s premier international allrounder.
Making his debut eight years ago, Bravo had an immediate impact, helping West Indies capture the 2004 Champions Trophy as the leading bowler with an invaluable 15 wickets in the tournament in England. Since then, he has gone on to take 142 wickets at an average of 30 to remain a vital part of the West Indies limited-overs side.
A player who seemingly reserves his best for the big moments, his only century so far came in the 2006 Champions Trophy when he helped West Indies reach the final before losing to Australia.
In the Test arena, centuries against South Africa and Australia in the space of three innings in 2005 proved his ability with the bat and two six-wicket innings hauls against England and Australia his prowess with the ball.
