In a Novel Way, Dwayne Bravo Celebrates His 600th T20 Wicket
In the T20 format, Dwayne Bravo keeps excelling. On Thursday, the bowler became the first with 600 T20I wickets. The Caribbean all-rounder made the accomplishment while competing for Northern Superchargers versus Oval Invincibles in the ongoing The Hundred event.
