After suffering a hamstring injury earlier in 2016, followed by a surgery, West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who plays for Gujarat Lions (GL), has been ruled out for the remainder of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017. Bravo has still not recovered completely to be eligible to play in the IPL 10 tournament. Gujarat owner Keshav Bansal confirmed the development on Twitter. Bravo did not play any of the six matches played by Gujarat so far this season. Following his exit from IPL 2017, he is also in doubts regarding his participation in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017, slated to be held in England in June. With April 25 being the deadline for the announcement of the final 15-member squad for the tournament, chances looks bleak for the Trinidad and Tobago cricketer. Dwayne Bravo’s upcoming song to feature Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni?
Earlier in December 2016, Bravo was ruled out of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2016-17 after he suffered a hamstring injury during a match against Perth Scorchers. Bravo sustained injury while trying to stop a boundary. Bravo held his hamstring as soon as he incurred pain. Bravo underwent a scan after he was stretchered off the field. He later underwent a surgery in January 2017. Meanwhile, Bravo has found quite a few ways to keep himself occupied in India. Apart from cricket, Bravo has made quite a name for himself in the entertainment industry in India.

Gujarat Lions earlier tweeted a video of Bravo and his younger half-brother Darren Bravo. In the video, both brothers can be seen talking about Dwayne’s upcoming song that features India’s current captain Virat Kohli and former skipper MS Dhoni. “We go over to India, India, India. I call up a boy named Kohli, Kohli Kohli. We tell him to WhatsApp Dhoni.” Soon after the stanza, both brothers were seen laughing at full strength.
