An unimpressed Doull, who was commentating during the match, said players should sport their real names on the jerseys while playing in a tournament.”I know this is going to sound a bit pedantic but I don’t like that at all. I do not like… put your real name!”, said Simon Doull said while commentating.”It’s a new tournament. You’re trying to encourage people to know who these players are. Recognize the superstars of the game. Yes, he might think it’s cool, but put your real name on your shirt so that the young kids, the older fans, the men, the women that come along to watch this game know exactly who that is. That is Dwayne Bravo. It’s not ‘Champion’! Champion of what,” Doull added.Dwayne Bravo has also sung and produced the song ‘Champion Champion’ that went viral in the aftermath of the West Indies cricket teams’ victory in the 2016 T20 World Cup.This is not the first time that a player using his nickname has irked a senior or former player. During the 2018 Asia Cup, former India player Sunil Gavaskar looked unhappy with Dinesh Karthik sporting his initials ‘DK’ on his national jersey.advertisement”Maybe that’s his nickname but since the jersey carries his number, people should identify with the name. Maybe with the name he can have his initials,” Gavaskar had said then on air.Bravo, who announced his retirement from international cricket in 2018, is currently in action at the Global T20.
