Colombo: All-rounder Dwayne Bravo has welcomed comments from some pundits who consider the West Indies to be among favourites to win the ICC world Twenty/20 tournament underway in Sri Lanka.
At least two members of the team have brushed aside the favourites tag including
Captain Darren Sammy who says its means nothing unless players can back it up with strong performances, CMC reports.
Bravo and the rest of the West Indies cricketers will Thursday and Friday focus on final preparations for their opening match against Australia Saturday.
"It's good to come into the tournament and have people show us the kind of respect and admiration to rate us among the top teams," said Bravo, currently number five in the allrounders ladder of the latest T20 rankings.
"We have come here as a confident team and we believe we can do very well for the people back home."
Meantime, Bravo is confident he can rediscover the form which saw him produce one of the best all-round displays in the short history of the tournament.
