Dwayne Bravo has been traded by the Trinbago Knight Riders to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The 37-year-old Trinidadian requested the trade that will see compatriot Denesh Ramdin move the other way prior to the start of the new season.
“At this stage of my career, I needed a new challenge, which is to work with new talent for the benefit of Cricket West Indies,” Bravo said in the statement released by the four-time CPL champions.
“Also, becoming part of a new franchise SKNP will provide me with a new channel in CPL. I want to thank TKR for respecting my wishes and for all their support over the years. I also appreciate everything they have done for Trinidad and Tobago in general.”
Venky Moore, Director of TKR, thanked Bravo for his contribution to the team and welcomed back Ramdin to the fold.
“DJ Bravo has been instrumental in not only building TKR into a champion team but also captained the team which earned three championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018. We are sad to see him leave but we respect his wishes and his desire to help Caribbean cricket,” he said.
“We welcome back Denesh Ramdin to the TKR family and look forward to the 2021 season and defending our title.”
Moore also announced that Kieron Pollard has been retained as captain and that his vice-captain will be Sunil Narine. (SportsMax)
