Dwayne Bravo to retire after T20 World Cup

Dwayne Bravo is one of the best all-rounders in the history of T20 cricket. He has been playing for the West Indies for a long time. However, the experienced all-rounder has decided to call time his international cricket. 

Caribbean captain Kieron Pollard revealing it would be the T20I great's final international match at home.

Bravo, who will likely feature in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in October-November, has played 86 T20Is for the West Indies, including 39 at home. In that time he has won two T20 World Cups, taken 76 wickets at 24.98 and scored 1229 runs at 23.18. He played a further 164 ODIs (93 at home) and 40 Tests (15 at home).

West Indies had raced to 30/0 when the rain commenced, first reducing the match to a nine-over-a-side affair, before washing it out altogether. 

Andre Fletcher and Chris Gayle made the most of the three overs that were possible, with Fletcher racing to 17 off 12 with two sixes and a four, and Gayle 12 off six with a pair of boundaries.

The two teams will be hopeful the Test series is less rain-affected after three of the four T20Is were washed out.

Pakistan took out the lone completed T20I by seven runs.

Initially planned as a five-match T20I series, the fixtures were rejigged as a four-match campaign after the second and third ODIs between West Indies and Australia were postponed.

The opening match of the series only saw nine overs of play, with the third seeing just eight deliveries.
