World Cup comes first for Brathwaite


Share post:

KOLKATA – All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite is poised to take up a lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) contract with Delhi Daredevils next month, but at the moment the only thing occupying his thoughts is helping West Indies win this month’s Twenty20 World Cup.

The 27-year-old entered last month’s draft at a base price of US$30 000 and walked away with a deal worth US$626 000, after Daredevils battled to secure his services for the cash-rich April 9 to May 29 tournament.

And though the IPL follows quickly on the heels of the World Cup here, Brathwaite was clear on where his priorities were.

“I don’t want to look too far ahead. The most important thing is to do well in the World Twenty20,” Brathwaite stressed.
