However Bravo confirmed retirement from test cricket in 2015. Dwayne Bravo took 337 wickets and scored 6310 runs in his entire international career across all three-formats of the game.
“Today I want to confirm to the cricket world that I have officially retired from international cricket in all formats of the game. After 14 years when I made my debut for the West Indies, I still remember that moment I received the maroon cap before walking onto the Lord’s Cricket Ground against England in July 2004. The enthusiasm and passion I felt then, I have kept with me throughout my career,” Bravo said in a release.
The Windies all-rounder helped national side to win 2012 and 2016 ICC World Twenty20s. But he will no longer be the part of next t20 world cup in 2020. Bravo played his last international match in September 2016 against Pakistan which was T20I game in which West Indies faced 8 wickets defeat in Abu Dhabi.
Meanwhile Jamaican all-rounder played last ODI in 2014 against India and last test cricket match was against Sri Lanka in 2010. Dwayne Bravo had been facing pay dispute issues with Windies cricket board which made him out of the national side.
While announcing retirement, Bravo also confirmed that he would be playing in twenty20 leagues all over the world for different franchises.
