Dwayne Bravo appointed CSK’s bowling coach after he announces retirement as a player from IPL

Dwayne Bravo was not retained by CSK as a player ahead of the upcoming IPL mini auction

The Chennai Super Kings management has decided to appoint Dwayne Bravo as the bowling coach of CSK for the next IPL season after the West Indies allrounder did not register himself for the upcoming IPL mini-auction, which is to be held later this month.

Dwayne Bravo was not retained by CSK for the next season of IPL as a player, but since he is still active in the other leagues around the world, it was believed that he might register for the upcoming auction and might be picked by the other IPL teams.

However, Bravo made the announcement earlier today that he is bringing the curtains down on his IPL career and will now take up the role of working with the young bowlers of CSK.

CSK already has bowling consultants in the form of the former Indian speedster Balaji and the South African coach Eric Simmons, but now with Bravo becoming a part of the coaching staff as well, it seems Simmons might only remain the bowling coach of CSK’s South African franchise Jo’burg Super Kings.

Dwayne Bravo is playing in the Abu Dhabi T10 league right now

Dwayne Bravo is currently playing in the T10 league in UAE where he is captaining the Delhi Bulls. Bravo played in the CPL as well earlier this year and he is also going to play in the upcoming International Leage T20 in UAE for MI Emirates.

But, in the IPL, Bravo will now only be active as the bowling coach of CSK. It was always anticipated once Bravo hangs his boots, he would be given some sort of a coaching responsibility by CSK because of the wealth of experience that he has and that’s what exactly happened. CSK got Bravo into the folds straightaway.

It now remains to be seen how the young bowlers of CSK develop under the guidance of Bravo who has played so much of T20 cricket around the world.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
