Abu Dhabi: Chennai Super Kings skipper M.S. Dhoni.
Virat Kohli and Devadath Padikkal gave Bangalore a dream start after losing the toss and opting to bat against Chennai. In the 14th over, it was Bravo who got Kohli back and brought Chennai back into the match. Dhoni’s unbeaten 111 in 13 overs helped Bangalore reach 156 for five. Bravo took three wickets for 24 runs.
Dhoni started praising Bravo’s fitness and ended up calling the player his brother. “It’s a good thing Bravo has regained fitness. He also bowls well. I see and call Bravo a brother. “Every year, we fight over whether to slow down or not,” said Dhoni.
“You are doing this to mislead the batsmen and now everyone knows that Bravo is known for his slow ball,” he said. Whether it’s a yorker or a length ball, why not throw all six balls differently. The batsman needs to be amazed as to why he did not slow down, ”said Dhoni.
“Bravo is a very important factor in the Twenty20. He has played in all venues around the world and in different situations. “Whenever Bravo is needed by the team, he rises to the occasion and performs well,” Dhoni added. The Chennai skipper said that he had initially intended to replace Bravo with Moin Ali but later changed his mind.
