Dwayne Bravo helped the team with his experience

Dwayne Bravo again helped his West Indies team in the match against Australia. He also explained what his team's plan was before the match "It was always in the team plan if we bat first and we lose early wickets for me to go in and control the innings with the bat - it's more my style of play," Bravo told the broadcasters, as quoted by cricbuzz "Pick up the ones and twos lay that solid platform for the likes of [Andre] Russell, Fabian [Allen], Pooran, if Polly is in the squad, to do what they have to do in the back end."

"I must be honest, at some point, I was trying to get out at the back end to allow Russell and these guys to finish off" He served as an example to young players, and as always, he tried to help the team with his experience as much as possible.

"It's just about guiding the younger players: Hety, Pooran, Obed McCoy, Hayden Walsh...that's the kind of information we keep feeding to these younger players," Bravo said. "We needed partnerships and the way Hetmyer batted in the first game and into this game, it's just a pleasure to see him bat.

He's a batting leader in our group, we gave him the responsibility to take control of the batting and show some maturity." "We all know how classy he is and how dangerous he can be, [the advice was] just to bat deep, it's a ground that has a big wind factor advantage."

Hetmyer

His batting partner Hetmyer revealed what Bravo told him during the match "I had never batted with Bravo before ... he was just telling me to keep going and just do what you do best," Hetmyer said. "I really trusted him batting and running between the wickets."

Fidel Edwards was great, especially in slower delivery, and Bravo was the one who helped him the most "Two days ago I teach him how to do it," Bravo revealed. "I said, you have the perfect action to bowl a different slower ball.

I let him stand about five feet away from me and said Fidel, all you have to do with your action is sling the ball like this with pace but he didn't have the confidence to do it in a game." "So I said to him do a few in practice. I said do it [in the game], nothing wrong with trying, so for me to see him have success I'm happy."
