Darren Bravo and CWI have come to an understanding that he won’t be rushed backed into international cricket, while Sunil Narine progress to play the longer formats is under discussion with his representatives according to Cricket West Indies (CWI) CEO Johnny Grave.
ESPN Cricinfo revealed recently that the CWI led by Grave and Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams held positive talks with the Bravo brothers, Narine and Pollard about playing one-day international cricket for West Indies again in time for the 2019 World Cup, by participating in the rescheduled Super50 tournament scheduled for this October, instead of February 2019.
Grave did give some specific clarification on Darren Bravo and Narine, when asked if they, in particular, could be fast-tracked back into the team before the Super50.
“We had a very long and honest conversation with Darren on that and one of the things we are keen to not do is rush him back too quickly”, Grave told Sportsmax.tv.
“He and we need to recognize that he hasn’t played top-level international cricket since 2016.
“So when Darren comes back into the side, presuming he performs well in CPL and Super50, plus even for Trinidad in four-day cricket, he is technically absolutely spot on ready for the challenges of international cricket.
“If you look at who we are playing, away to India and Bangladesh and home to England, the last thing we want is Darren brought back too early, not get any runs and everyone say he should not have been recalled.”
