Bravo Gets Another T20 Chance

Darren Bravo get a chance in the World T20 TournamentDarren Bravo has been recalled to the West Indies camp for the World Twenty20 tournament, having returned to full fitness.

The batsman was forced to head home early from the tour of England this summer, due to a groin injury, with the left-hander missing the T20 series win over New Zealand in Florida.

But Bravo has returned to full fitness and has been named in the Windies' 15-man squad for the upcoming tournament in Sri Lanka.

The 23-year-old, who scored three Test centuries last year, will be joined in the squad by half-brother, Dwayne Bravo, who has been named vice-captain.

All-rounder Andre Russell is also included in the party, despite missing the two T20 games against the Black Caps through injury.

Darren Sammy will again captain the side and he will be able to call upon star batsman, Chris Gayle, following his recent return to limited-overs international cricket.

Gayle has a Twenty20 century to his name, smashing 117 against South Africa in 2007, as well as seven half-centuries in 23 innings for his country.

The 32-year-old is the type of player that can win a T20 game from any position, and his presence will make West Indies serious contenders for the trophy, a fact that betting fans should take heed of.

Another key player is likely to be spinner, Sunil Narine, who shone in this year's IPL before being given a chance in the Test arena.

Narine played a crucial role in helping Kolkata Knight Riders win the IPL title before taking seven wickets in the two T20 wins over New Zealand.

West Indies will play a warm-up game against hosts, Sri Lanka, on September 13 2012, before playing their opening match of the tournament, against Australia, on September 22 2012.

Squad: D Sammy (capt), Dwayne Bravo (vice-capt), S Badree, Darren Bravo, J Charles, F Edwards, C Gayle, K Pollard, S Narine, D Ramdin (wkt), R Rampaul, A Russell, M Samuels, L Simmons, D Smith.
