Bravo pokes fun at fellow countryman Keiron Pollard during CPLT20

Bravo is a great player who can bat as well as bowl. He is a slow pacer which is a very hard choice of bowling as this requires a lot of thinking and confusing the batsman on the other end of the pitch that how will the next ball be delivered. On his road to reach the 500 wickets mark, the most wickets he took was of his teammate and good friend, Kieron Pollard. Who would have thought that the first player ever to reach the 300, 400, and 500 T20 wickets will be a slow pacer? Bravo is a great baller and has the ability to change the game at the last moment.
