“Getting the most wickets is never my ambition.” Dwayne Bravo

His ambition, as per the former West Indies all-rounder, is to win more trophies than his teammate Kieron Pollard. In an interview with the Sports star, the legendary cricketer said:

“I aim to win trophies, and my personal goal is never to get the most wickets, hit the most runs, or take the most catches because those aren’t things you can plan for.”

He continued, “These things come with the multiple games you play and you know, your form and all of these things, but the most important thing for me is that I want the most titles, the most trophies, and there’s a race between myself and my best friend Kieron Pollard to see who can finish with the most T20 trophies.”
