Chennai Super Kings’ star bowler Dwayne Bravo made a stunning comeback into the Indian Premier League as he played a crucial role in helping his team win the match against RCB. Bravo, who didn’t bowl in the last four matches of the 2021 CPL because of an injury, however, he made a solid start for the CSK in the second leg of IPL 2021 in the UAE.

During the match last night, DJ Bravo gave a crucial performance and picked up three wickets against the RCB and gave away only 24 runs. The pacer picked the crucial wickets of skipper Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Harshal Patel and won the Player of the Match award for his brilliant performance.


Impressed with his stunning performance, CSK skipper MS Dhoni heaped praises on DJ Bravo for his match-turning performance. Calling him ‘brother’, MS Dhoni also revealed his master plan against RCB. Dhoni said:

“Bravo has turned up fit – that’s a very good thing. And he is executing well. I call him my brother. We always have fights over whether he should bowl the slower ball. But I told him that now everyone knows he bowls slower balls, so I told him to bowl six different balls in one over. Whenever he can, he takes up responsibilities,”

Dhoni also heaped praises on their star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s spell, which was crucial in the context of the game. He said:

We were worried about the dew and we saw that last season. They got off to a great start and after the eighth or ninth over, the pitch slowed down a bit. Jadeja’s spell was very crucial especially with the way Padikkal was batting from one end. I told Moeen that he would bowl from one end during drinks, but then I changed my mind,”
