Calcutta: Darren Bravo says he is back to his old self, feeling 100 per cent fit, and West Indies cricket fans can expect to see him at his best during the upcoming World T20 in Sri Lanka.
The stylish left-hander was sidelined with an injury earlier this year but made a full recovery after completing his rehabilitation in Trinidad. He arrived at the West Indies conditioning camp in Bridgetown “healthy, strong and focused on the mission ahead”.
“It is a great feeling to be back and representing the West Indies. I’m fully fit. I am just looking forward to the Twenty20 World Cup and the rest of the season ahead this year,” the 23-year-old was quoted as saying in a WICB release.
“The most important thing is to spend as much time out in the middle and try to understand my role and try to execute as best as possible in the practice matches, so that when it comes time for Sri Lanka I will be confident enough to go out there and represent the West Indies and make our people proud.”
Bravo has looked relaxed and at ease in every net session so far. He said he is eager to get padded up “have a good hit” in the two warm-up matches slated for Thursday. He added that he is eagerly looking to head back to Sri Lanka where he made a start to his Test career back in 2010.
“I will try to use those two matches to get fully back into the groove. I played in the T20 tournament in Trinidad and felt comfortable at the crease again. Thursday will provide another opportunity to see where I am with my comeback.” Bravo said.
