  • Dwayne Bravo from T20 to Top 20? Home > News > January 2012 >Dwayne Bravo from T20 to Top 20?

    Explosive batting by Dwayne Bravo helped lead Trinidad and Tobago to the their second straight Caribbean Twenty20 title earlier this week with a crushing 63-run victory over Jamaica.

    A swashbuckling performance, smashing four fours and three sixes in the top score of 49 from 43 balls, in front of a capacity crowd at the Kensington Oval in Barbados was what one has come to expect from the 28-year-old from Santa Cruz, Trinidad.

    The island's cricket fans will have been further heartened by reports that Bravo is keen to get back into the West Indies team this year after a somewhat turbulent few years for the Caribbean side.

    However, if things don't work out, he can always turn to a new career in music that stems from his friendship with Grammy award-winning reggae pop star Beenie Man - their collaboration "Badman Soca" is due out soon with teasers coming online this week.

    "Beenie and myself are very good friends," Bravo told Choice FM's Martin Jay. "Whenever he comes to Trinidad he stays at my house, and if I go to Jamaica I go round to his place."

    "I love the entertainment side: I love dancing, I love singing. Whenever Beenie plays he'll call me up on stage to dance.

    "It what just a matter of time before we ended up doing a song together. So I went to Jamaica in August and recorded a song in his studio. Happy to get it out and looking forward to doing more."

    Whether he's hitting sixes or the charts, looks like Bravo will be having a busy 2012 eitherway!
