When Brian Lara left and Darren Bravo entered, it was hard for many fans around the Caribbean (and by extension the globe) to hide their feelings towards the similarities of both Trinidad and Tobago batsmen. But then again, it was hard for the younger Bravo to hide the obvious similarities in batting style between him and T&T's prince. It's never easy to be compared to a legend and one of the world's greatest, and it's even harder to live up to those expectations.
However, Darren showed extraordinary potential very early in his career. He might have had to wait a long time for his first century at the international level ( 31 ODIs, nine Tests and four T20Is to be exact), but when he got it in his 10th Test match against Bangladesh, he made it a big one. He scored 195 runs, falling agonizingly short of a double-century. He scored two more tons in the series in India immediately after. After 12 Test matches, his run aggregate and average were identical to Lara's after 12 matches.
Bravo made his debut again to the Test match scene in the West Indies vs England Series, 2019. Like his role-model though, Bravo will be hoping to be his best in the same colours Lara did it in.
