Bravo will lead the Caribbean side in the Champions Trophy beginning next week in the United Kingdom and was in top form grabbing a staggering 32 wickets this season.

Bravo has attributed his success to bowling more over at the death.

Bravo took an impressive four wickets for 42 runs in his four for Chennai Super Kings who lost to Mumbai Indian in the final of the IPL last week.

He was among several West Indians who struck form during the sixth season of the multi-million dollar tournament.

Others include Darren Sammy for the Sunrisers Hyderbad, Sunil Narine, with the Kolkata Knight Riders and Chris Gayle’s record breaking batting performances with the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

“It is a good tournament for us West Indians, and we hope to continue doing well and are looking forward to the next IPL. Right now, it is good to have so many West Indians in form ahead of the Champions Trophy,” said Bravo.
