Dwayne Bravo will always be a true West Indian champion – Cricket West Indies president
Gayle’s teammate, Bravo, had already announced his retirement from international cricket. All-rounder Bravo scored 10 in his last innings with bowling figures of 0-36 in four overs. Like Gayle, the 38-year-old Bravo won the ICC T20 World Cup with West Indies in 2012 and 2016.
Gayle, who wore sunglasses during the game including under his helmet while batting, made a final mark by claiming Marsh’s wicket with 1-7 from his single over. Gayle celebrated by jumping on Marsh’s back after the dismissal.
In contrast to Gayle’s potential exit, Bravo’s departure was expected.
“(Bravo) performed admirably in all three formats,” Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt said. “He will always be a true West Indian champion.”
Australia kept the same team from its eight-wicket rout of Bangladesh on Thursday. Two-time champion West Indies made one change from its 20-run defeat to Sri Lanka on Thursday, replacing Ravi Rampaul with spinner Hayden Walsh.
