CRICKET: Davis says Bravo should have been a permanent fixture in WI team

Former Test batsman Bryan Davis says all-rounder Dwayne Bravo should have been a permanent fixture in the West Indies test team over the years.

The 31-year-old Bravo announced last Friday he was retiring from Tests, but would continue to be available for One-Day Internationals and Twenty20s.

His decision also followed his sacking from the one-day team last December and his removal as captain after just over a year in charge.

Davis says he can understand Bravo's frustration, having been overlooked for the West Indies for so long.

He further says he were coach, he would have Bravo in his team all the time, as he is one of the best cricketers in the region.

Bravo’s decision to retire from the longest format came nearly four years after he played his last game on the tour of Sri Lanka.

He finished with 2,200 runs from 40 Tests at an average of 31, and also took 86 wickets at nearly 40 apiece.

Davis played four Tests against Australia in 1965 for the West Indies.
