Bravo bonus for Afghanistan! CSK bowling coach roped by Rashid Khan & Co for T20 World Cup 2024

Afghanistan will make merry by picking Dwayne Bravo's brain on the pitches in the West Indies

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has pulled off a major signing, appointing legendary West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo as their ‘Bowling Consultant’ for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. This is a significant boost for the Afghan team, as they look to make a strong impression in the Caribbean and USA.

Bravo, a household name in world cricket, is a proven winner. He has been a key member of the West Indies’ two T20 World Cup victories in 2012 and 2016. His experience of playing in high-pressure situations and his vast cricketing knowledge will be invaluable to the young Afghan bowling attack.

How would Dwayne Bravo’s experience help Afghanistan at T20 WC?

Bravo’s T20 experience is a major boost for Afghanistan. Having spent his career bowling on pitches with similar pace and bounce, Bravo can guide the Afghan bowlers, especially the pacers, to exploit these conditions effectively. His knowledge of Caribbean pitches would be a great help for the Rashid Khan-led side, who could be a real dark horses.

Interestingly, no other bowler has taken more T20 wickets than the 40-year-old. In the 573 matches, he has taken 625 wickets at a superb strike rate of 17.6. Although he is among the coaching staff for CSK in IPL, Bravo also plies his trade for MI Emirates as a player in ILT20.
