Bravo 'delighted' with half-century in warm-up match against UP

Trinidad, Nov 1 (ANI): West Indies batsman Darren Bravo has said that he valued the half-century he scored against Uttar Pradesh in a warm-up match on the India tour because it was his first red-ball competitive match since having an eye surgery this year.

According to TrinidadExpress.com, he scored 61, Kieran Powell made 64, Narsingh Deonarine was not out on 83 and veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul led them all with an unbeaten 91.

Bravo said that he wanted to bat a bit longer, spend more time in the middle but tomorrow was another day and he would just have to go into the nets and make sure that his game is in the right way before the first Test.

He added that early on, he was not timing the ball the way he would have liked but the longer he spent at the crease, he started to hit the ball nicely and this gave him a whole lot of confidence.

Bravo further said that he was a confident player and was sure that this series would be special one for him and for West Indies, adding that he was keeping his fingers crossed that all goes well. (ANI)
