Cape Town - The thought of Kevin Pietersen playing his last game in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge this Sunday will hurt Dolphins fans.
However, there is some degree of comfort in the fact that West Indian star Dwayne Bravo is on his way to Durban as his replacement.
The Dolphins have won all four of their matches so far in the tournament - thanks largely to two blistering centuries and a half century from Pietersen - and they are looking to make it five from five this weekend against the Cape Cobras in Pretoria.
Bravo was on Wednesday not named in the West Indies squad for their tour of Australia next month, and the Dolphins confirmed to Sport24 on Wednesday that the big-hitting all-rounder will arrive at Kingsmead on Friday.
He will play the last five games of the group stages.
Bravo has played in 54 T20Is for the West Indies, scoring 960 runs at a strike rate of 120.3 and an average of 25.26. He has taken 36 wickets at an economy rate of 8.58.
It is Bravo's second stint in Durban after he represented the Dolphins in last season's tournament.
