West Indies all-rounder and CSK star player Dwayne Bravo announced that he will retire from internationals after West Indies plays its last T20 World Cup game against Australia this weekend. The allrounder, who has appeared at all seven T20 World Cups and helped West Indies to lift the trophy in 2012 and 2016, has 90 T20I caps for his country as well as more than 500 appearances in the format overall.“I think the time has come,” the 38-year-old Bravo told ICC’s post-match show on Facebook. “I’ve had a very good career … had some ups and downs, but as I look back at it, I’m very grateful to represent the region and the Caribbean people for so long.”

"To win three ICC trophies, two with my captain [Daren Sammy] on the left here. One thing I am proud about is that in the era of cricketers we had we were able to make a name for ourselves on the global stage and not only do that but have silverware to show for it." Bravo has played 90 T20s 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. He 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.
