Profile

Dwayne Bravo is a richly talented West Indian all-rounder who, over the years, has been playing a handy role in fast-tracking West Indies back into international prominence.

Bravo made his first-class debut for Trinidad and Tobago in 2001-02 and two years later, on the back of some strong all-round performances, made his debut at home against England. In his maiden Test, he showed promise with the bat and also picked up 3 wickets though West Indies lost heavily. In only his third Test, Bravo showed glimpses of prodigious talent scoring 77 and scalping 6 wickets in the first innings. Early signs showed that Bravo was a better bowler than batsman but he improved on his batting, opening the innings for Trinidad and Tobago and is now a much more accomplished batsman than what he started off as. After being dropped for the 1st Test against Australia in 2005, Bravo bounced back hard in the 2nd Test slamming a brilliant 113, coming in at a precarious situation. It was followed by a superb spell in the 3rd Test where he picked up 6 wickets in the first innings. The next two years were not as fruitful as injury, followed by a poor 2007 World Cup, marred his progress.

In 2010, Bravo turned down a WICB central contract, preferring to play several T20 leagues around the globe. He lost his place in the Test side but remained a regular fixture in the T20Is. He was signed up by Mumbai in the inaugural edition of the Indian T20 league and performed exceedingly well. Later, Chennai bought him in 2011 and retained him for the next three seasons. Before the Champions Trophy in 2013, Bravo replaced Darren Sammy as the ODI captain.

A middle-order batsman, Bravo with his stylish cover drives and quick feet movement, exhibits the true Caribbean flavour. He is also a brilliant fielder and brings energy to the West Indian outfit with his acrobatic fielding. A more than useful death-overs bowler, Bravo has clever variations up his sleeve and also has one of the best slower balls in the business.
