Dwayne Bravo to retire from International Cricket after T20 World Cup 2021

West Indies all-rounder and T20 cricket stalwart Dwayne Bravo of Trinidad and Tobago announced his retirement for the second time from international cricket after the T20 World Cup games against Australia.

Bravo came out of retirement in 2019 and has been a key member of the West Indies team defending its title in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

defending champion West Indies were eliminated from semifinal contention after losing to Sri Lanka.

The 38-year-old Bravo has played in the 90 T20Is for the West Indies since making his debut against New Zealand at Auckland in 2006. He scored 1,245 runs at an average of 22.23 and a strike rate of 115.38.

Bravo also picked up 78 wickets with his medium-fast bowling and was effective with his variations in the death overs. Bravo was part of the West Indies teams that won the T20 World Cup in 2012 and 2016.

The Trinidadian had a below-par tournament in the United Arab Emirates, scoring just 16 runs in four group games and picking up only two wickets.

West Indies only beat Bangladesh and lost to England, South Africa, and Sri Lanka in four group games.
