DJ Bravo speaks about Dhoni’s greatest quality as captain
West Indies all-rounder DJ Bravo has been playing for years in the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) under the leadership of MS Dhoni. The all-rounder revealed some of the biggest qualities of Dhoni and how he remains calm in the dressing room.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have won the IPL trophy thrice and have been a major successful franchise all over the years. The duo of MS Dhoni and DJ Bravo has played a major part in it. It has been a regular scenario where the combination of Dhoni’s tactics and Bravo’s death bowling has won them a game.
Despite having all the success and popularity all around the world, Dhoni does not behave like a superstar in the CSK dressing room, revealed by the West Indies all-rounder. He also termed putting the youngsters under no pressure as his biggest quality as captain.
“MS doesn’t put pressure on anyone. Outside of cricket, you rarely see him, but his room is always open, so you can walk in there anytime. He”s brilliant to have conversations with, obviously played so many games,” he said.
“He creates an environment where people feel comfortable and everyone relaxes; he doesn’t behave like a superstar despite all his accolades and achievements,” Bravo added.
Bravo also revealed what Dhoni always used to say in the dressing room.
“CSK over the years have had many good captains in their dressing room. We’ve had Faf du Plessis, Brendon McCullum, myself, Mike Hussey. These guys have been leaders in various countries, but MS (Dhoni) is the type of person who always says that ”you are here because you”re good enough, so when you come here, you don’t need to prove anything to anyone. The franchise sees and it knows what you can offer. Just be yourself,” he concluded.
Bravo and co would have been currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), but the tournament is suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
