IPL 2018 : CSk all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has credited team skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his development as a “death overs specialist” saying it was due to the faith he showed in him.
“He has shown a lot of faith in me, the trust. For me it’s all about preparation. I always like bowling to MS in the end (in practice sessions) as he is one of the best finishers in the game and I challenge myself by bowling to him,” the West Indies all-rounder said.
“I always give him a scenario, sometimes I win and sometimes he wins,” Bravo was quoted as saying by the CSK website.
He also said Dhoni allows players to express themselves and to learn from their mistakes.
“As a leader he is one of the best that has every played the game, he allows players to express themselves, allows them to learn from their mistakes. He’s very cool, very calm and that’s very good,” Bravo added.
He said it was important to start well in the tournament, which kicks off with a match between CSK and arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in Mumbai on April 7.
“The start (to a season) is very important, especially in a tournament like the IPL where all the teams are very, very good,” he added.
