Dwayne Bravo has over the years been MS Dhoni’s go to man in the death overs, whether to put a lid on runs or to pick wickets and the West Indian all-rounder has delivered. He has been one of the most consistent performers for Chennai Super Kings in IPL.
So, Bravo’s return from injury was seen as the tonic CSK needed to get back to winning ways after a high scoring loss against Rajasthan Royals. He bowled 4 overs and gave away just 28 runs in the match against Sunrisers. But CSK finished on the wrong side of the result. He was taken for 38 runs by KXIP in the next match but Watson and Du Plessis ensured CSK made a strong comeback as they won by 10 wickets.
Bravo gave away just 5 runs in the over and also joined an elite list of bowlers. Mavi’s scalp was Bravo’s 150th in IPL, which made him just the fifth bowler to reach the mark. He is now on the joint fifth spot with another CSK veteran Harbhajan Singh.Teammate Piyush Chawla is in touching distance with 156 wickets.
The champion jig was back and Bravo was celebrating again. The final over also saw MS Dhoni affect a trademark run out and CSK it seems are back to their best, which augurs well for fans of IPL.
