Darren Bravo is looking to make a name for himself and is not concerned with the comparisons to Brian Lara
West Indies batsman, Darren Bravo has spent most of his career till today being compared to Brian Lara by cricket analysts.
During the rain-affected match against Sussex, Bravo scored 19 runs from 60 balls, and during his innings he continued to show why critics compared him to the legendary former West Indies captain with three brilliant boundaries.
“I often seem to be spoken of as ‘the next Brian Lara’, but I can’t really focus on that, I just have to go out there and play my natural game every time I bat,” Bravo said.
With the West Indies struggling to master the conditions, they will be hoping to get more playing time against the England Lions squad up in Northampton.
However, the conditions don’t seem to be the only problem for the West Indies right now, as Narsingh Deonarine and Assad Fudadin are both being delayed by visa problems, while Marlon Samuels has not been seen since he left India last week after completing his time with the Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Bravo meanwhile, is just looking to make a name for himself on the international stage, even though the career statistics of him and Brian Lara are almost the same.
“I just have to go out there, believing in myself and continuing to make a name for myself,” Bravo added.
