Bravo named as WI vice-captain

Dwayne Bravo has been named as West Indies vice-captain for the upcoming one-day international tour of Zimbabwe.

West Indies will play five matches in the series, and opening batsman Chris Gayle has been named as captain of a 15-man party. With no captaincy experience at first-class level for Trinidad and Tobago – Bravo’s native country – it will be a brand new challenge for the allrounder.

“It is really a great feeling to be given the vice-captaincy,” Bravo told the Trinidad Guardian newspaper. “I never thought that this would come my way at such a young age but it has and I intend to give it my best shot. Gayle can expect 100% support from me on and off the field of play.”

Bravo has 71 ODI caps to his name, with a batting average of 24.19 and a bowling average of 30.84.
