Premier League (BPL) or playing in England''s domestic cricket circuit has helped him massively.
"It shows that playing cricket outside of the Caribbean, whether it''s Big Bash, IPL (Indian Premier League), BPL
(Bangladesh Premier League), playing in England, all those different conditions, is actually paying off now," The
Sydney Morning Herald quoted Bravo, as saying.
"It''s benefiting the whole West Indies team. It''s a good sign and a good chance for other players to get the opportunity
