Guyana: West Indies’ T20 legend Dwayne Bravo took part in his last T20I match in the Caribbean as he will retire after the T20 World Cup in UAE, scheduled in October/November later this year.
The 37-year-old made the disclosure to his teammates in the team huddle and via CWI social media ahead of the start of the fourth and final contest.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam gave Bravo his signed shirt after the fourth T20I at Providence Stadium, which was abandoned by the rain.

“I just want to take this opportunity to wish one of our stalwarts. In all three formats, he has played though he retired from the other two a long time back. But Bravo is playing his final game in Maroon on the Caribbean soil. We look forward to that,” Kieron Pollard said in a video posted on Windies Cricket.
Former West Indies pacer and renowned commentator Ian Bishop termed as one of the greats of the shorter format.
“Today is Dwayne Bravo’s last game for the West Indies “in the Caribbean”. We should celebrate one of the great T20 cricketers. I don’t use the word “great” lightly. We’ve had great test players, great ODI players. Bravo is a great of T20 cricket undoubtedly.” Bishop tweeted.

Remember, Pakistan won the four-match series by 1-0. Only the second T20I was completed with Green Shirts winning it by seven runs while the first in Barbados, third and fourth T20I in Guyana became victims of the rain.
