Port of Spain : A big-hitter on the field and a hit DJ off it, West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo Wednesday retired from international cricket to prolong his career as a professional player available for Twenty20 franchise events all over the world. The 35-year-old Bravo, who is not a part of the team which is currently engaged in a series in India, played 40 Tests, 164 ODIs and 66 T20Is since making his debut back in 2004.

His last appearance for the West Indies was more than two years ago. Outside cricket, he also found fame for his hit track 'Champions' that became the West Indies' anthem during their triumphant 2016 T20 World Cup campaign in India. "Today I want to confirm to the cricket world that I have officially retired from international cricket in all formats of the game...I will continue my professional career as a cricketer and entertainer living as a true champion," Bravo, who has competed for Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians in the IPL, said in a statement.

"After 14 years when I made my debut for the West Indies, I still remember that moment I received the maroon cap before walking onto the Lords Cricket Ground against England in July 2004. The enthusiasm and passion I felt then, I have kept with me throughout my career," he added.The Trinidadian said his decision was also based on a desire to vacate the field for younger talent in the national team.
