Bravo to shake a leg in In­dian dance show

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

West Indies’ crick­et­ing star Dwayne Bravo an­nounced plans to take his tal­ents to the dance floor by join­ing an In­dian celebrity dance com­pe­ti­tion, months af­ter mak­ing waves with his ac­claimed hip hop an­them “Cham­pion”. “I am very ex­cited to be a part of this show and to do some­thing dif­fer­ent. I just want to have fun and en­joy,” Bravo, 33, told re­porters Fri­day ahead of his first per­for­mance in Jha­lak Dikhla Ja, the In­dian ver­sion of BBC’s Strictly Come Danc­ing. “These days, cricket and en­ter­tain­ment go to­gether... Danc­ing is def­i­nitely harder than cricket,” said Bravo, who was a part of the West Indies squad that played against Pak­istan in a Twenty20 se­ries last month. The all-rounder might well take in­spi­ra­tion from former Eng­land bowler Dar­ren Gough who won the third se­ries of Strictly Come Danc­ing in 2005. Bravo launched the track “Cham­pion” in Mum­bai in March dur­ing the World Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tion which his side went on to win af­ter beat­ing Eng­land.
