Dolphins fans could see Bravo play alongside Kevin Pietersen, who will appear in his final match for the Durban outfit this season. Also available for selection is Ryan McLaren, who has returned after a stint with English team Hampshire.

Prenelan Subrayen is ruled out of selection after being found guilty of a suspect bowling action this week.

Bravo returns to Durban for another taste of South African T20 cricket and the West Indian said he was looking forward to helping the Dolphins continue their good form.

"It's good to be back. Speaking to my agent after the last stint I had, I said if the opportunity comes again I'd definitely come back and represent the Dolphins," Bravo said.

"I have unfinished business I'd like to take care of. I've been following the team since the competition began and it's good to go 4 in 4 - it puts me under some pressure but at the same time I'm happy, I love pressure. I'm really excited and I look to forward to the game on Sunday, if I get the opportunity to play alongside Kevin Pietersen, it will be a dream come true for me," Bravo added.

Dolphins captain Morne van Wyk spoke highly of Pietersen's influence on the squad and he expects Bravo to bring more of the same to the side.

"The performances that we've seen on the park is why the guys are here - it's what they pride themselves on and why they are some of the best cricketers in the world," Van Wyk said. "I think something that is overseen, something the public don't always realise, is that when it comes professionals and in this case Kevin - the influence he's had in the change room just connecting with the guys lifted everybody. His impact was substantial even before he scored his first run. When guys are performing and we're winning, it makes everyone's life easier and the whole vibe is very good."

"I'm not too sure what Dwayne meant when he said he had unfinished business but I think I know what he means. I think all of us didn't have the competition we'd have liked to have had last year and the fact that we want him back and he is here just shows that off the field things are good and it's all about having the right group, the right chemistry and that is what we have going so far," the skipper said.

The Dolphins face the Cobras on Sunday. Play gets underway at 12h00 midday.
