Rhythm is the essence of West Indies and Gujarat Lions all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo, be it delivering those perfect slower ones in the Indian Premier League, breaking into victory moves or expressing it all in music.
After creating waves with his hit song ‘Champion’, Dwayne Bravo seems set to produce another track which features India captain Virat Kohli and his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The number ‘Champion’ by the 33-year-old Trinidadian was a hit during the 2016 World Twenty20 in India, which was won by West Indies.
Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni the focus
This time around, Bravo’s song revolves around India and arguably its two biggest cricketing names at the moment.
In a video uploaded by Gujarat Lions on Twitter, Bravo is talking about his next song with step-brother Darren Bravo, who is part of the Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders.
Bravo goes: “Let us go over to India, India, India. I call up a boy named Kohli, Kohli, Kohli. We tell him to WhatsApp Dhoni, Dhoni, Dhoni.”
As the all-rounder ends the song, the two burst out laughing.
Kohli also featured in Bravo’s song ‘Chalo, Chalo’, which features many cricketers like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Michael Hussey and Irfan Pathan.
Dwayne Bravo’s injury
The Gujarat Lions player has been out of action since December after suffering a hamstring injury during the Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia.
He recently announced that he is just a game or two away from returning to the field.
The absence of Bravo --- all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja too joined the team only after the first two matches --- has hampered Gujarat Lions’ campaign in 2017 IPL. The Rajkot-based team, which topped the league standings in 2016, is currently languishing at the eighth and last spot in the points table with one victory and four losses.
Gujarat Lions take on Kolkata Knight Riders in Kolkata on Friday night.
Bravo will hope his song will put a spring in the step of his teammates.
