Trinidad and Tobago Knight Riders (TTKR) all-rounder DJ Dwayne Bravo has left the defending champions to take on new challenges with the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the upcoming 2021 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) in August.

TTKR announced last week that Bravo was traded to the Patriots in exchange for Denesh Ramdin, while Sunil Narine was named vice-captain with skipper Kieron Pollard staying at the helm.

TTKR Manager, Colin Borde hailed Bravo as a fierce competitor and while the 37-year-old will be missed, there will be opportunities for other players to rise to the challenge.

TTKR Director, Venky Mysore said the all-rounder played an integral role in building the franchise into a champion team.

He noted that Bravo also captained the team which earned three championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
