Cricket News: Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard are two of the West Indies’ and T20 cricket’s most prominent players. While they have won several matches for their national teams and different franchises opposing each other, they also share a strong camaraderie that shows in their play on the field and the infectious spirit of the Caribbean guys.
Bravo became only the second cricketer in history to appear in 500 T20 matches earlier this month. The first was none other than Pollard, his West Indies teammate. And the two have now exchanged some social media barbs.
Notably, DJ Bravo’s kid recently celebrated his birthday, and to commemorate the event, the Chennai Super Kings all-rounder uploaded a photo of his son on social media with a touching statement.
“Today is your lucky day! Djbravo Jr, my firstborn son, happy birthday papa love you! #8 I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful day filled with cake and ice cream, “The image has a caption.

In response, Pollard wished the little boy a happy birthday, writing, “…happy bday young bravo.” In reaction to Pollard’s remark, DJ Bravo tagged the Mumbai Indians star and said, “…your son in law.”
To this, Pollard, who is known for giving it back, said Bravo, “…stop dreaming, why are you sleeping so late?”
Both West Indian talents are presently playing in the Indian Premier League for their respective teams. Their teams, however, are in opposing situations. While Chennai Super Kings became the first club to join the 2021 playoffs following a dismal season last year, defending champions Mumbai Indians have only a remote chance of entering the final four even if they win their remaining two games.
Following the IPL, they will rejoin in the West Indies to prepare for the T20 World Cup, which they will defend. Notably, the Windies are the only team in the world to have won more than one T20 World Cup, and they hope to add to their tally in the event due to take place in Oman and the UAE.
