Dwayne Bravo is delighted to be back with his former team-mates in the Indian Premier League side Chennai Super Kings (CSK), after the franchise used their ‘Right to Match’ card to retain the West Indian for INR 6.4 crore in the IPL 2018 auction. Bravo reckons CSK are the best T20 franchise in world cricket, and is delighted to make his Chennai return with the prospects of once again playing alongside MS Dhoni and co.
CSK the best T20 team Dwayne Bravo has played for
As reported by Yahoo Cricket, Dwayne Bravo spoke about how he finds Chennai Super Kings as not just the best IPL team, but the best T20 team that the West Indies cricket all-rounder has played for. Bravo said,
“Personally, they (CSK) are the best franchise that I have ever played for and I am looking forward to it and meeting up with our captain MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, (Ravindra) Jadeja and also to the newcomers who are now going to be new members of our family.”
Dwayne Bravo played a major role in CSK’s dominance in the IPL, where he scored 706 runs and picked 79 wickets for the ‘yellow brigade’, during IPL 2011-2015. Dwayne Bravo is delighted to once again team up with his old mates for IPL 2018, and is looking forward to playing alongside the new players that Chennai Super Kings managed to sign at the IPL 2018 Auction.
The 34-year-old all-rounder continued,
“Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu (he played with them for MI) to just name a few guys who are going to join us and wear the Yellow jersey… can’t wait!. I am happy, blessed and honoured to be retained by the Chennai Super Kings.”
”Ngidi is a young, talented fast bowler… I am very happy to be in the same team with him. I am looking forward to embracing him when he comes to represent the best franchise in the world.”
Dwayne Bravo is an experienced T20 campaigner having played in the domestic leagues of West Indies, Bangladesh, Australia, India and Pakistan. Having played all over the world, Bravo still feels that the atmosphere and love he gets at Chennai Super Kings is unmatched and CSK are indeed the best T20 franchise in the world, who are the top contenders to take the IPL 2018 edition by storm.
Dwayne Bravo believes CSK’s return to the fore in IPL 2018 is a good thing for the popularity of the league as Chennai’s fans were waiting in anticipation of the day where they would once again be able to see the likes of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis and others back in their yellow jersey.
“The return of CSK to the IPL is a big one, a special one, a moment that a lot of people were waiting for. Chennai Super Kings are one of the most successful franchises in IPL history. Definitely, IPL without Chennai Super Kings, it didn’t have the same impact it had in the previous years.”
