Dwayne Bravo has returned to Trinbago Knight Riders ahead of the fifth edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2023). Bravo returns to the Knight Riders after two seasons with the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, winning the title with them in 2021.

Bravo is the leading wicket-taker in T20 history and has more wickets than any other player in the Premier League with 124 casualties in these 97 matches. Bravo is also the leading wicket taker for Knight Riders with over 100 wickets for his home franchise.

Bravo represented the Trinidad franchise from 2013 to 2020, claiming the title four times during that time. With five CPL titles, Bravo is the most successful player in the tournament’s history and is synonymous with Trinidad cricket, so his return to the home team will be an exciting prospect for Knight Riders fans.

The full lineup of Republic Bank’s CPL will be announced during the draft show, which will be broadcast at the end of June 2023.

Kieron Pollard, TKR Captain, “Very exciting times. Champion DJ Bravo returns to his home franchise TKR. Our relationship and our friendship is second to none and this is a great opportunity for both of us to represent TKR together once again in the upcoming season. We are very pleased to have him back in the red and black.”

Venky Mysore, TKR Team Director, “DJ (Champion) Bravo has been one of the key pillars on which TKR has been built. We are delighted to welcome him back home and look forward to another enjoyable season. No doubt the entire #TeamTKR and our fans will be looking forward to seeing him back in TKR colours.”

CPL 2023 is scheduled to be held from August 16 to September 24 in Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana.
