Selectors will realise what they are missing: Bravo

Bravo said he is extremely proud of his fellow Caribbean players especially Gayle, who has already hit two centuries in the Indian Premier League.

“I am happy in the manner Chris has been performing. You feel proud when a fellow West Indian performs. It feels nice that West Indians are doing well in the Indian Premier League. May be we are not playing for the national team but the selectors will realise what they are missing,” the Chennai Super Kings player told reporters after the 18-run win over Delhi Daredevils here on Thursday night.

Bravo, Gayle and Jerome Taylor are among the players who joined their IPL franchises after being overlooked for the ongoing home series against Pakistan.

The players were recuperating from injuries before the national team was announced and the Board has accused them of not completing their rehabilitation in their hurry to participate in the IPL.

Bravo joined the CSK late but insisted that he didn’t have any difficulty in gelling with the team.

“So far, it has been great. The management and the players make me feel at home. We have gelled very well,” he said.

About Thursday’s match, Bravo feels that they did well in keeping the pressure on the opponents which worked wonderfully.

“Early on in their innings, they had a chance. But they kept losing wickets. We kept up the pressure and forced them to make mistakes,” he added.

Bravo is hopeful that CSK will finish their home engagements, against Kochi Tuskers Kerala on May 18, on a memorable note.
