Speaking of the signing of Bravo, Angus Fraser, Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket commented…
“Dwayne is one of the most exciting and best T20 players in the world. He can win games of cricket with bat or ball. He may only be available for six games, but I expect him to have an impact in a number of these matches. I’m sure he is a player the huge Lord’s crowds will enjoy watching.”
Bravo himself added…
“I’ve been fortunate enough throughout my career to have played all round the world and Lord’s in London is a place that really excites me.
“I have no hesitation committing to Middlesex for 6 games of the Vitality Blast and am looking forward to joining Dan Vettori’s squad at the start of July.”
