Afghanistan on Tuesday roped in former West Indian allrounder and the leading wicket taker in Twenty20 cricket Dwayne Bravo as their bowling consultant for next month’s World Cup.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) said Bravo will be an asset for the team.
Most members of the Afghanistan team have reached the Caribbean for a 10-day preparatory camp where Bravo will also join them.
The 40-year-old is currently the leading wicket-taker in T20 cricket with 625 wickets in 573 games and was regarded as one of the pioneers of bowling in the shortest format.
Afghanistan will play warm-up games against Oman on May 29 and Scotland two days later. They are in a tough Group C with co-hosts West Indies, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Uganda.
The ninth edition of the World Cup will be played in the United States and the West Indies from June 1-29.
