Dwayne Bravo announced on Friday to leave the Indian Premier League and continue working with Chennai SuperKings as their bowling coach public.
Bravo was let go by the franchise during the IPL retention process despite playing a crucial role in the teams that won the championship under MS Dhoni.
The West Indies all-rounder has been named CSK’s new bowling coach while Laxmipathy Balaji takes a year off. Bravo expressed his excitement about the job and expressed his joy at being a part of IPL history.
“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!”.
