West Indies all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo is set to retire from international cricket after the ICC Twenty20 World Cup in October/November hosted by the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
Bravo, 37, was a consistent member of both the Test and One-Day Internationals (ODI) teams  showcasing his extraordinary athletic and all round ability.
His illustrious career  began in 2014 when he was selected for the regional team, which included West Indies legend, Brian Lara.
Bravo first played for the West Indies in April 2004 in an One-Day International contest against England in Guyana, before making his Test debut at the home of cricket three months later against England at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
His Test career ended in 2010 after playing 40 matches and his 164-match ODI career which spanned 10 years until 2014.

Bravo began playing Twenty20 matches for the West Indies in 2006 and it is the format that made the Trinidadian a global star especially in West Indies cricket and India.

He helped West Indies win World titles in 2012 and 2016.
The cricketer has made a name for himself in Twenty20 cricket by playing in every popular franchise cricket tournament in the world including the Indian Premier League and the Big Bash in Australia.
The West Indies-Pakistan Twenty20 series, which ended earlier this month, was Bravo’s last match for West Indies on Caribbean soil.
On that day of the final Twenty20 match, West Indies Twenty20 Captain, Kieron Pollard confirmed this in a video posted by Cricket West Indies media.
