Bio

Darren Bravo comes from a strong cricketing background – Dwayne Bravo is his half-brother and Brian Lara his mother’s cousin.

The batsman is renowned for his poise at the crease and although only aged in his mid-20s, has already experienced plenty of success.

A 49 match first-class career saw him average nearly 40, and eventually forced selectors to give him a go in the one-day international team.

Playing in his maiden ODI against India in mid-2009 and batting at number six, Bravo hit his first two balls to the boundary in an entertaining knock of 19.

His T20 debut followed in 2010, before a maiden Test appearance in November of the same tear.

Bravo entered the Test series against Sri Lanka full of confidence after another impressive first-class season. He looked an accomplished batsman in his first series, hitting three polished half-centuries on his way to an average of 68.66.

It took Bravo 45 international matches to notch his maiden ton, scored against Bangladesh in October 2011.

Bravo now has more than 70 ODI caps and has scored two ODI centuries and 16 fifties.

He scored two fifties in the Test series against England in 2015, with a top score of 82.
