“I would tell him to find something that works” – Michael Holding to Darren Bravo
Former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding suggests Darren Bravo to find the problems and sort it out as soon as possible to get into the main team again. It can be noted that the newly-picked West Indies selection panel has dropped Darren Bravo for the upcoming one-off Test against Afghanistan in India next month.
“I would tell him to find something that works. If he has a technical issue – and I don’t have the foggiest idea whether that is the situation – I would instruct him to find somebody and get it arranged,” Holding said.
“If it’s simply a question of experiencing an awful trench and you don’t know precisely what the issue is, again find somebody who is profoundly qualified and skillful enough to take a gander at you and recommend something that might turn out badly and attempt and get it sorted.”
Michael Holding, who is one of the best fast bowlers to have ever played Test cricket, also hopes that the selectors will be Bravo’s side with all supports in this bad time. “Him being out of the team, I hope he will not take it personally and won’t be vexed,” Holding said.
“I recently read that Jonny Bairstow was let alone for the England team, and I likewise read that the chairman of the selectors and another selector really went to visit him and plunked down and conversed with him. I trust that they will accomplish something very similar for Darren Bravo. He is excessively dexterous and skilled a player to simply be appeared on the shore. He is too talented to be left out.”
Bravo was excluded from the test squad as he only managed 47 runs in four innings against India in the last series. Even his form had dried more in recently finished Caribbean Premier League (CPL) too. He scored just 128 runs in seven matches at an average of 25.60.
