The Bravo brothers, Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons have all made themselves available for the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in Cricket West Indies' upcoming Super50 Tournament, in another step towards returning to the national side for the 2019 World Cup in England. A release from the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board stated that Bravo would, in fact, be the vice-captain of the Red Force, which will be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin. Also named in the squad was fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, who last played for West Indies in November 2015.
The latest development came after it had emerged in July this year that talks were ongoing between the players and Cricket West Indies. The board subsequently shifted the Super50 from February 2019 to October this year, to ensure minimal clash between the domestic 50-over competition and various T20 leagues around the world that the players are a part of.
Johnny Grave, the CWI chief executive officer, had told ESPNcricinfo then that the board intended to let the players perform in the Super50 to earn their way back into the national squad. The view was seconded by Courtney Browne, the chairman of selectors.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
Really great news this, hopefully they all perform and get their rightful spots back in the Windies team. Maybe things are actually getting better in Windies cricket because tbh I didn't think any of these guys would even get this close to playing for WI again.
