Fans on Twitter reacted hilariously after Dwayne Bravo becomes the bowling coach of the franchise after announcing his retirement from the Indian Premier League (IPL). They said that by this pattern MS Dhoni will become head coach of the franchise next season.
Dwayne Bravo retires from IPL; becomes CSK’s bowling coach
In what has been the latest development, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Dwayne Bravo called time on his IPL career. The West Indies player, after playing for 15 years in the league, announced social media posts. However, this isn’t the end of the road for him as he will now handle the coaching duties. He will replace L. Balaji, who will miss the upcoming edition due to personal reasons.
Bravo is arguably one of the finest players to have played in the IPL. The all-rounder made his debut for Mumbai Indians in 2008 and after plying his skills for three years, he became a part of Chennai Super Kings ahead of the IPL 2011.
He won his first IPL title in the same year with the team and then also was part of victories in 2018, and 2021 along with the Champions League T20 victory in 2014. Bravo was also part of the now-defunct Gujarat Lions when CSK was banned from the league.
Bravo is the leading wicket-taker in the history of IPL with 183 wickets from 161 matches. He is also the first player to win the Purple Cap twice when he achieved the feat in 2013 and 2015. The Caribbean player this year surpassed Lasith Malinga’s tally of 170 wickets in the IPL to become the leading wicket-taker.
Posting on his Instagram, he said; “I’m looking forward to this new journey because it’s something I see myself doing after my playing days is fully over. I enjoy working with bowlers and it’s a role I’m excited about. From player to coach, I don’t think I have to adjust much because while I’m playing, I always work with bowlers and try to come up with plans and ideas on how to have that one step ahead of the batsmen.
“The only difference is I will no longer be standing at mid-on or mid-off. I never thought I would be the leading wicket-taker in the history of IPL. But I’m just happy to be a part of IPL history!”
