    Dwayne Bravo believes it’s only a matter of time before T10 cricket takes off and goes global.

    The all-rounder plays for the Maratha Arabians in the current T10 tournament in the UAE where teams face 60 balls each.

    Despite its youth – it’s only in its second year – the format has already seen some wonderful moments like Mohammed Shahzad’s 16-ball 74 in the opening game of this year’s competition.

    Bravo, speaking to ESPNcricinfo, believes the format will catch on eventually noting that even T20, which is the most popular format now, was at one point questioned by many cricket fans.

    And the format seems to love West Indians – earlier today, Nicholas Pooran put on a man of the match performance to help his Northern Warriors to an 8-wicket win over the Kerala Knights.

    He scored 43 not out from just 18 balls to take the Warriors to their target of 102 in just 7.2 overs.
