Bravo sends fitness hint with lively half-century

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad,  CMC – West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo hinted at a return to full fitness with a entertaining half-century in a trial match here Thursday.

The seasoned campaigner struck 68 from just 51 balls to help a Trinidad and Tobago XI beat a T&T Legion XI by 15 runs in a match at the National Cricket Centre.

T&T’s national side are preparing for January’s start of the Caribbean Twenty20 while the Legion outfit are poised to turn out in the US Open T20 tournament in Florida.

The right-handed Bravo smashed two fours and five sixes as his side posted 160 for five from their 20 overs. West Indies A batsman Jason Mohammed hammered 61 from 46 balls, striking three fours and sixes. Bravo missed the limited overs phase of West Indies ongoing tour of Bangladesh with injury.
