DUBAI - Globe-trotting former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo showed delight in passing his knowledge about the game to some of the youngsters he comes across during the PSL and termed the league a “tournament for younger generation of Pakistan cricket”.

The 35-year-old, who retired from international cricket last year, is featuring for Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 4 and showed a glimpse of his utility with three for 19 in four overs to help Quetta Gladiators beat Multan Sultans by six wickets in Dubai on Friday.

Asked if he passes his knowledge of delivering so many varieties in bowling, Bravo replied: “Definitely, that’s why I stand at mid-off and mid-on most of the time to feed my knowledge to the young fast bowlers. I ask them a few questions just to see how they are feeling.”

 For me, it’s not about trying to change anything or try to coach them, but it’s about knowing how developed their brains are, how they react under pressure and then I intervene with my experience. It’s important to allow them to make mistakes, allow them to learn, and they be free and they are allowed to learn.”

Bravo said Twenty20 format is tough and bowlers can get frustrated at being thrashed.  “This format is tough for the bowlers, so it’s important that the bowlers keep believing in themselves,” said Bravo, whose slower ones and lethal yorkers have earned him the most wickets in Twenty20 cricket with 475.

He was part of both the West Indies sides that won the ICC World Twenty2o in 2012 and 2016.  “You can easily put yourself under pressure when couple of balls go to the boundary and that’s where my roles is, which is to keep them calm and allow them to learn to come back.”

Bravo reckoned the PSL tournament was meant for the younger generation of Pakistan cricketers and was excited to see young fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain bowling at 140-150kph speed. “It’s good to see a young fast bowler bowling at such a speed,” said Bravo of Hasnain who is playing for Quetta.

“Pakistan have always produced some of the best fast bowlers in the world and it’s nice to see him. He is young and fast and it is a joy to see him from mid-off and mid-on. I will definitely spend some time with him.”
