Dwayne Bravo moved through Melbourne, changing Renegades for the Stars, before the Big Bash 2018-19 with the presence of Stephen Fleming as coach, a great attraction for the player who has committed throughout the tournament.
Bravo, who recently announced his retirement from international cricket, completes the names of the stars abroad for the next season, joining the Legpin duo Matt and Sandeep Lamichhane, who will share a place.
Bravo has established a strong relationship with Fleming throughout its time. with Chennai Super Kings, the current IPL champions.
“I’ve worked with Dwayne for several years at the IPL and I’ve always thought it would be a great addition to the All-Star wardrobe,” Fleming said. “Obviously, he has his extravagant side, which is great entertainment for the crowd and can really increase the energy in the field, but it’s his style of attack with the bat and the ball that can turn a game.”
“We have a lot of bright young players coming through the Stars and balancing that we’re bringing in one of the most experienced T20 players in the world. “
The Stars finished bottom in the BBL last year, with only two wins in the 10 games, and they are putting a large stock in legspin to help change their luck, but they also expect a significant impact from the bowling skills of Bravo’s death and the medium order attack.
“I’ve worked with Stephen Fleming before, he’s a great coach and I’m sure we can do great things together at the Stars, “said Bravo.
This season’s tournament has expanded to include a full list of local matches with the com competition that begins on December 19 and ends on February 17.
