Just watched his innings at the crease. Given out LBW...

He looks ridiculously lazy and lethargic at the crease. Almost like he doesn't want to be there.

I really don't know whats troubling this guy. Talent for days but something wrong...

Lil Bravo has never looked good in ODI.

He was never suited for this form of cricket.

I am a big Bravo fan.

Leave him for Test cricket.

Where is the urgency - it 's like he doesn't even want to be there.

And besides, we have overlooked his SR of 70 after 101 innings and instead have instead focused on Shai Hope.

Please show me where he as a decent ODI bat.

Peeps here talking about Hope strike rate.

Bravo is a test Batsman.

I waiting for someone to prove me wrong.

Stats... Point... Anything but conjecture.

Being a big fan of Bravo gives to the freedom to be tough on him.

I am still mad at Bravo

He is the architect of his own demise given how he handled the issue with Dave Cameron. He allowed this to drag on for too long.

At a time when he was about to take his game to another level he was forced out of cricket. Now his struggling to get back just simple form

Well it is not good to see Bravo fall away like this, but his place in the WC team might not be safe anymore, at the moment Chase might be an better option.

Bravo does have the shots but is often a scratchy starter...unfortunately he has not regained his form since the two year layoff...This is a great shame for West Indies indeed and he and Hope are the most talented batsmen we have.

Talent for days but he has one scoring shot and has never proven that he can consistently rotate the strike or find the gaps in Test or ODI cricket.

Interesting how talent is viewed amongst West Indian fans.

His general attitude at the crease doesn't seem right. Something wrong here.

Darren Bravo cyant come good when he is no good.
He lacks two basic set of skills to be a successful ODI batsman.
1. He can't place the ball in gaps and rotate the strike
2. He can't properly judge a single.

He generally pokes around for most of his innings with a strike rate of below 50 and hope to improve that by some boundary hitting at the end. More times than not, he gets out before he can improve his strike rate thereby pressuring the incoming batsmen.

Evin Lewis had the same shortcomings.

Lewis and Bravo will be two heavyweights that will only weigh down the WI team in the WC.

Before the Big Eediat lil Eediat episode, Darren's test average was in free fall. He was not even the highest rated Windies batsman. To me, Darren's problems started around that New Zealand tour with the Sammy incident. Not sure what really happened there

Im really not sure what the future holds for this talented batsman.
He was desperate to be a clone of his idol. Just never worked out.

I would say Hetmyer is the most talented batsman we have.
