May sound mean, but I'm glad young Bravo was let go...I don't think T20 cricket has done anything positive for his game. He needs to focus on the tests and ODI's....he has a lot more to offer the game of cricket than what the T20 version glorifies...

Dwayne Smith is a player who promised much but delivered little; he's a hit or miss kind of batsman - he either scores runs or gets out early for very little .He's too inconsistent to be relied upon, but I'm sure Mumbai's loss will be another franchise's gain.

I would not have been surprised to see Pollard's name on that list because at the moment he's just getting by on reputation and past exploits alone...

remember when they released doesn't mean another IPL team won't buy them
still think smith will prob be bought by someone at a reduced price..i hope bravo doesn't and can focus on making runs in tests
Back in Trini...

I don't know his stats in the T20 version, but it seems to me that he performs better with the T&T side than with any other T20 team...including the WI.

Darren Bravo and Adrian Barath should be kept out of T20s until they develops the discipline and concentration for the Test version of cricket.  T20 and ODI are destroying their careers. It is time for the WI to develop different teams for the different versions of the game.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!
