IPL 2019: MS Dhoni reveals Bravo’s unique trait
Chennai Super Kings got back to the top of the table after comprehensively defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets at MA Chidambaram Stadium. It was once again a low-scoring encounter and the batsmen felt quite tough to bat on these conditions. CSK became the only team to get double figures of 10 points. Having played 6, they won five and lost just once.
After team’s win, the winning skipper MS Dhoni was there at the post-match presentation and spoke how difficult it is to lose Dwayne Bravo in the team as the latter has been ruled out for two weeks due to Grade 1 hamstring strain. Dhoni said that Bravo’s absence made it quite difficult to get the combination right as they are missing the services of an all-rounder.
However, Dhoni believes that Bravo would recover soon and meanwhile, the skipper plans to rotate the players. Talking further about Bravo, Dhoni said that Bravo is someone who has a unique speciality to trick the batsman not once but quite a few times.
“Losing Bravo, it is slightly difficult for us to get the combination as we are missing the all-rounder. Hopefully, Bravo gets well soon and we can rotate our playing XI more. He has confidence in me. He is someone who deceives the batsman quite a few times.
Not only a good leggie and googly, but he has also got a very good flipper. Overall he is a good package and he is someone I can fall back upon. He is someone who if you tell that this is the right length and pace to bowl on, he executes most of the times,” Dhoni added in a statement.
The table-toppers will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals tomorrow at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
