Profile

Dwayne Bravo is that creature long needed by West Indies, an allrounder with plenty of flair and skill both as a batsman and seam bowler. Unfortunately for West Indies, they haven't been able to utilise his services as often as they probably would have liked to: till the end of 2013, more than nine years since his Test debut, he had played only 40 out of West Indies' 81 Tests in the same period. Prioritising IPL over international cricket has led to differences with the board, while injuries have also limited his Test appearances, but as a limited-overs player Bravo remains a key member for West Indies and took over from Darren Sammy as ODI captain in 2013. He held the post till December 2014, when the selectors replaced him with Jason Holder and left him out of the ODI side, two months after he had played a central role in the team pulling out mid-way from a tour to India due to issues with the payment structure in their revised contracts.

Timeline
    • April 18, 2004
      A low-key beginning
      • Dwayne Bravo's first international appearance doesn't draw much attention: he takes two wickets in the truncated ODI against England in Georgetown, but finishes on the losing side.
    • May 2, 2004
      Early success with the bat
      • Bravo's batting skills are first put on show in St Lucia in the ODI series against England; he makes a mature, unbeaten 33 to guide West Indies to a four-wicket win while chasing 282 and hand them the series.
    • July 22-26, 2004
      Strong first in Tests
      • He makes his Test debut at Lord's, and though the match ends in a disappointment for West Indies, Bravo makes a strong all-round impression. He grabs 3 for 74 in the first innings and scores a patient 44.
