Veteran T20 star Dwayne Bravo is known for his unparalleled swagger and flair on the cricket field. Never shy to burst into his unique celebratory moves after taking a wicket, Bravo is famous for his antics that add spice and entertainment to the game.
Recently, he wore a jersey in the ongoing Global T20 Canada bearing the word “Champion” on the back instead of his surname as a reference to his extremely popular dance anthem. While Bravo’s ‘champion’ jersey impressed certain fans, former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull was offended by it. He felt this showed a lack of seriousness to the game and was not helping in expanding the reach of the sport.
“I know this is going to sound a bit pedantic but I don't like that at all. I do not like it... put your real name! It's a new tournament. You're trying to encourage people to know who these players are. Recognize the superstars of the game. Yes, he might think it's cool, but put your real name on your shirt,” Doull said in the commentary box.
