Middlesex bring in West Indies star Bravo

Middlesex have signed West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo for this year’s Vitality Blast.

Bravo will join up with Middlesex in early July and will represent the club in the first six Vitality Blast matches this season, making his debut against Surrey at Lord’s.

He will then play against Essex at Chelmsford, Gloucestershire at Uxbridge, Somerset at Lord’s, Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl, before his final outing for the club comes against Hampshire at Lord’s.

Angus Fraser, Middlesex’s managing director of cricket said: “Dwayne is one of the most exciting and best T20 players in the world.

“He can win games of cricket with bat or ball. He may only be available for six games, but I expect him to have an impact in a number of these matches. I’m sure he is a player the huge Lord’s crowds will enjoy watching.”
