Darren Bravo has constantly had his batting style compared with that of retired batting maestro Brian Lara, who is also his cousin.

And after being dismissed in the first Test following starts of 51 and 32, it is the advice of Lara, as well as Bravo’s elder brother and fellow West Indies batsman Dwayne—currently playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League—to which Darren is looking to inspire him to that “special” innings at Queen’s Park Oval in the second Test against Australia, starting tomorrow.

The younger Bravo, who will play his first Test on his home ground, where he plays for Trinidad and Tobago and Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC), is pleased with his personal form and looking forward to the occasion.

“I’ve been timing the ball well in the nets, I’ve been working hard, (and) I’m getting some advice from Brian and my brother as well,” he told the media after West Indies’ morning session yesterday at the match venue. “So I’m taking it one step at a time, and hopefully sooner or later something special is around the corner…”
