He made his Test debut for the West Indies in the Second Test against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 26 December 2015.[2]

Needing 19 to win in the last over against England, Brathwaite hit four consecutive sixes in the first four balls of the last over in the final of 2016 ICC World Twenty20 to enable the West Indies to win their second World Twenty20 title.[3] This was his debut World Cup. He was the first player for the West Indies to hit four consecutive sixes in a T20I match.[4]

In August 2016, Brathwaite was named the captain of the West Indies team for their Twenty20 International matches against India in Florida later that month.[5]

On 8 March 2018, during the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier match against Papua New Guinea at the Old Hararians in Harare, Brathwaite took his first five-wicket haul in ODIs.[6][7]

In April 2016, he made his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut with franchise Delhi Daredevils,[8] having been bought at auction for Rs. 4.2 crore (having had a base price of Rs. 30 lakh).[9]

He also spent a number of years playing domestic cricket in Ireland, with Dublin-based Leinster Cricket Club, with whom in 2009 he won the Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup, defeating Donemena CC in the final.[10]
