Bravo aims for more ODI hundreds

Darren Bravo said he was bothered that he has not been able to convert more of his 50s in One-day Internationals into hundreds.

Bravo hit the top score of 59 from 77 balls, as West Indies were dismissed for 211 in 48.5 overs in the first ODI, which they lost by six wickets at the Nehru Stadium on Thursday here.

 The 24-year-old left-hander now has 13 ODI half-centuries, but just one ODI hundred, an even, undefeated 100, against Zimbabwe earlier this year in Grenada.

 “It’s a good feeling to get my first score over 50 on the tour, but I should have gone on to bat until the end for the team,” he said.

 “I tried, but it didn’t work out. It is, however, important for us to keep our focus intact, believe in ourselves and look forward to the next game.”

On his conversion rate from 50 to 100, Bravo said: “That is something that has been bothering me for some time now. I think rotating the strike is something I need to learn to do better.

“I have scored hundreds, so I know I can do it. But in order to do it consistently, I need to work on some aspects of my game. It may take some time, but it is also important that I learn quickly.”

Bravo said he favoured batting in Tests most, but felt he could adapt to playing the shorter versions of the game, which many believe are the strong suit of the Caribbean side.

“Most players in our line-up have destructive batting styles and we need to learn how to concentrate while batting for long hours,” he said,

“Also, I think winning the World Twenty20 has made us more comfortable with the shorter formats. I enjoy batting in all formats, but I believe the Test arena is my forte. But I also believe that I have the capabilities and the talent to perform in any situation and any format.”
