DJ Bravo parties with Indian players at Lara’s residence
Under the tutelage of Virat Kohli, India swept the three-match T20I series and humiliated the reigning World T20 champions, before claiming the three-match ODI series 2-0 as the first ODI was washed out due to rain in Guyana.
So far it has been a remarkable tour for India. Now, both the teams are preparing for the upcoming two-match Test series which is a part of ICC World Test Championship campaign as the action starts on August 22 in Antigua.
However, ahead of the epic battle, West Indies great Brian Lara hosted players of the Indian team and the West Indies for a candid party at his residence.
Dwayne Bravo, who wasn’t part of the West Indies team squads for T20 International including One-day International series, both of which India succeeded, shared the pictures of the get together with Indian brothers, in what was truly a touching sight.
It is no surprise that Indians and Caribbeans share a great deal of camaraderie between each other and the IPL connection is always there.
“Thx to @brianlaraofficial for hosting us all at his residence..always great to catch up with my teammates and our brothers from India,” Dwayne Bravo captioned the images on his micro-blogging platform Instagram.
Chris Gayle, who recently surpassed legendary cricketer Brian Lara to become the highest ODI run-scorer for West Indies, was also spotted in the party alongside Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine.
The likes of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav were among few others spotted in Brian Lara’s party. India opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan posted a photograph with the legendary left-handed batsman, saying: “Lefty aur lefty ka ultimate combo”.
Shikhar Dhawan was part of the limited-overs series in the West Indies but he missed out on a spot in the Test squad. So, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are expected to fire up the innings for India when they start their World Test Championship campaign against the West Indies on Thursday (Antigua).
