Windies All-rounder Dwayne Bravo announced his retirement from international cricket on Wednesday. The 35-year-old last represented the Windies in September 2016 has played a grand total of 270 internationals between 2004 and 2016 and played a starring role in each of their two World T20 triumphs in 2012 and 2016.
“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 his retirement note.
