Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard are two of the towering figures of West Indies and T20 cricket. While they have won numerous matches for their national side together and for respective franchises opposite to each other, they also share a great bond which reflects on the way they perform in the field and the infectious energy of the men from the Caribbean.
Earlier in September, Bravo had become only the second cricketer to feature in a total of 500 T20 matches. The first was none other than his West Indies teammate Pollard. And the two have now shared a bit of banter on social media.
Notably, it was DJ Bravo’s son’s birthday recently and to mark the special occasion, the Chennai Super Kings all-rounder shared a picture of his son on social media coupled with a heartfelt caption.
“Today is your day! my firstborn son Djbravo jr happy birthday 🎂 daddy love ❤️ you Love ❤️ you! #8 I’m sure u will have a great day lots of cake and ice cream 🍨 🙏🙏❤️😍,” the picture was captioned.

Reacting on the same, Pollard had wished the young boy on his special day as he wrote, “…happy bday young bravo.” However, in a hilarious response to Pollard’s comment, DJ Bravo tagged the Mumbai Indians star and wrote, “…your son in law.”
To this, Pollard, who is known to give it back said to Bravo, “…stop dreaming why u sleeping so late.”
Both the West Indies’ stars are currently featuring for their respective teams in the Indian Premier League. However, their teams are in contrasting positions. While Chennai Super Kings became the first team to enter the playoffs in 2021 after a disappointing run last year, defending champions Mumbai Indians only have an outside chance of making it to the final four even if they win their remaining two matches from here.
Post the IPL, they will reunite in the West Indies setup for the T20 World Cup of which they are the defending champions. Notably, the Windies are also the only team in the world to have more than one T20 World Cup title to their credit and would want to take their number of titles to 3 in the event set to happen in Oman and UAE.
