Former West Indies player Dwayne Bravo is now part of the Delhi Bulls franchise in the 2020-21 Abu Dhabi T10 league. The former CSK player will take up captaincy from England captain Eoin Morgan. Bravo represented Maratha Arabians previously before he went on to change sides.

A newspaper recently stated that the Delhi Bulls have made some significant changes to the team. In the latest season of the T10 league, Delhi Bulls finished 7th. Owing to this, the franchise ended their association with former New Zealand cricketer Stephen Fleming. The new revitalized franchise has now appointed Andy Flower to coach the team. Moreover, Delhi Bulls have also hired the services of Evin Lewis ahead of the 4th season of the T10 league.

As far as his batting record is considered, Bravo has amassed 95 runs in 21 matches. It is quite evident considering these facts that Bravo has not been great with the bat. However, his bowling records are completely the opposite. In 21 matches, Bravo has picked a total of 21 wickets. He also boasts an impressive bowling best of 4/16. Clearly, Bravo has not lost his touch with the ball.

As a matter of fact, Delhi Bulls has retained some quality players. These players include Sherfane Rutherford, Ali Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Dushmantha Chameera, who will still represent Delhi in the league.

I want to create a dynamic squad under Dwayne Bravo: Andy Flower

Bravo was part of the Maratha Arabians side which won the tournament in 2019. Coincidentally, Andy Flower was the coach of Maratha Arabians in the 2019-20 season. Chris Lynn was the highest run-getter that season, smashing 371 runs in total. George Garton of England was the highest wicket-taker, with 12 wickets to his name this season. Andy Flower now seeks to reignite that chemistry with Bravo in a completely different franchise. Flower reckons that Bravo still possesses that leadership quality, required to win games for the franchise.

Andy now requires the franchise to lock in their main targets. Big players such as Morgan, Zaheer Khan, Angelo Mathews, and Adil Rashid have been a part of this franchise in the past. Even with the presence of such key players, Delhi Bulls only managed to win one game last season. Andy Flower is now focused on improving the team’s performance this year. The 4th season of the T10 league is set to take the stage on 28 Jan 2021. The opening match is set to be played at the Sheikh Zayed stadium.
