Bravo sends condolences on behalf of Windies


Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo yesterday remembered Tevin Robertson as a pleasant and talented young man who was immensely popular among fellow members of the T&T cricket family.

Robertson, a tall, slim left-arm fast bowler, died on Saturday in a car accident.

He was a highly-touted player who represented T&T at the WICB Under-19 tournament in 2012 and was a member of the training squad for the ongoing WICB Four-day First-class Tournament.

Bravo said: “I want to send condolences to his family on behalf of the West Indies team here in Bangladesh. I knew him as a young boy around the Trinidad and Tobago national team. He was very friendly, very polite, and had a good work ethic and it is just sad to hear he is gone.”

Bravo was speaking yesterday after the West Indies had a training session at Dhaka Academy as they prepare to face Pakistan in tomorrow’s final preliminary match at the ICC World T20.

“When I got the news I was stunned. He had a bright future ahead of him. He was a talented young bowler and we all had high hopes for him,” Bravo added.

Robertson was educated at St Benedict’s College. He represented Powergen and Moosai Sports in the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board club competitions.
