West Indian limited-overs skipper Kieron Pollard confirmed that his compatriot and one of the stalwarts of West Indies cricket, Dwayne Bravo is playing his last international match on the home soil, which is also coinciding with Men in Maroon’s last white ball game of the home summer season. The West Indies is taking on Pakistan in the fourth T20I of the four-match series in Providence, Guyana. 

Speaking after the toss, Pollard thanked the supporters of the team and said, “The last opportunity for the white ball series for us. It has been long and it has been tough. But having said that I would like to take this opportunity to wish one of our stalwarts of the game, he has retired from the other two formats way back, but this is going to be the last game for [Dwayen] Bravo in the Maroon on Caribbean soil.”

“You know Chris [Gayle] has been there and thereabout, but he has said that he is going to play till the age of 45. But at the end of the day, we just want to do well for these guys. So special day for us, let’s see what happens,” added the 34-year-old.

The 37-year-old Bravo has so far played 85 T20Is for West Indies, picking up 76 wickets and scoring 1229 runs. 

As far as the match is concerned, having decided to bat first after winning the toss, West Indies put on 30 runs in the first three overs before rain stopped the play. The Windies are trailing 0-1 in the four-match series with two matches washed out.
