Port-of-Spain:

West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has become the latest star to join the Indian Premier League, which kicked-off to an exciting start in Bangalore.

Bravo will play for Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar-led 'Mumbai Indians' team, which also features off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and South African all-rounder Shaun Pollock.

Bravo will miss the next week's Carib Challenge Shield Final against Jamaica but Trinidad and Tobago team manager Colin Borde feels the experience Bravo gains in the IPL will benefit the national team in the long run.

"I think everybody is excited for him going up to the IPL and playing with Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Shaun Pollock," Borde was quoted as saying by the 'Trinidad Express'.

"I think it's good for him and as a Trinidadian you must feel proud...he's the first guy to get in the IPL."

Meanwhile, Mark Ramprakash on Friday became the second English cricketer to turn down an IPL offer.

Ramprakash was approached by the Rajasthan Royals to replace South African captain Graeme Smith for two weeks, according to the 'Daily Telegraph'.

Earlier, Alistair Brown had also turned down an IPL contract.
