Bengaluru: As the world continues to combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has come up with a new song to inspire people.

On this outbreak due to pandemic, my heartful prayers to all of you out there! Let's fight together. A positive song during this outbreak.”

“I want to make it very clear, international T20 cricket only for West Indies. Due to the changes in the administration (at Cricket West Indies), the coach, the captain, I think it’s a good time for me to come back… I can still contribute in the shortest format of the game,” Bravo had said in December 2019.

While announcing his retirement in 2018, Bravo had said, “Today I want to confirm to the cricket world that I have officially retired from international cricket in all formats of the game. 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, “However, I must accept that for me to preserve my longevity as a professional cricketer, I must do as others before have done, leave the international arena for the next generation of players.”

The 13th edition of the IPL was to start on March 29 but has been deferred till April 15 due to coronavirus.
