DUBAI – All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has his eyes fixed on being a match-winner for West Indies in the Twenty20 World Cup starting next week, and believes his skill set can help the team succeed.

The 27-year-old emerged as a strong attacking lower-order batsman and tidy seamer on the recent Test tour of Australia with a couple of half-centuries.

Brathwaite said while his batting was ahead of his bowling, he was working hard to produce in both areas, to earn West Indies positive results in the March 8 to April 3 ICC event in India.

“In T20, fortunately I have the option of both [batting and bowling], but some days you go well with the ball . . . and some days it’s not so good with the ball, but then you have a chance to make up with the bat, so being an all-rounder is a plus,” Brathwaite said yesterday.
