The legendary West Indies all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo hasn’t been retained by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) prior to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega-auction. Furthermore, the experienced continues to take great satisfaction in the team’s accomplishments throughout the years. Bravo has proven to be essential in guiding CSK to IPL supremacy in 2021, delivering with both bat and the ball.
Curiously, CSK’s title-winning era surprised the cricket world as the team had a disappointing season the previous season. Furthermore, they did not make many adjustments to their lineup, and as a result, many spectators and analysts undertook them off. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni’s team overcame the odds and won the trophy for the 4th time.
Similarly, Bravo referred to IPL 2021 as a “special season” for CSK, stating that the squad was eager to do well after coming 7th in the 2020 edition.
Dhoni is the one who single-handedly built CSK and the culture: Bravo
“It was a special season because the season before, we came seventh and it was the first time CSK did not qualify (for playoffs) in the history of IPL. So, all of us as players were determined to come back and prove ourselves and the fans that we are much better than that last season,” said Bravo.
“So, even last season, no one gave us a chance because they called us the granddad of the IPL but we proved all the doubters wrong and created history again. I am very happy to be a part of the legacy of Chennai Super Kings, one of the most successful IPL franchises ever,” he added.
In addition to discussing the squad’s success motto, Bravo stated that captain MS Dhoni empowers everyone in the squad to be themselves. “It’s no secret that he is one of the best players to have ever played the game. He single-handedly built Chennai Super Kings and the culture. All of us as players are very proud and happy to have played under him and his leadership guidance. When it comes to off-the-field stuff, he doesn’t get involved much,” the 38-year-old added.
However, Bravo is almost certain to give up in the bidding pool for the 2021 tournament, and CSK is anticipated to pursue him.
