Bravo is the IPL's all-time wicket-taker with 183 wickets in 161 matches. The all-rounder also scored 1560 runs with a pass rate of around 130 and was instrumental in many Super Kings wins.
IPL Chennai Super Kings franchise announced on Friday that West Indian great Dwayne Bravo has been appointed as the team's bowling coach ahead of IPL 2023. Bravo, who was released from the franchise early last month, has ended his playing days in the IPL. A statement from CSK went on to say that L Balaji is on hiatus for a year due to personal commitments but will be available for Super Kings Academy.
"I can't wait to start this new journey as it's something I see myself doing after my playing days are completely gone. I love working with bowlers and it's a role I'm excited about. From player to coach, I don't think I have to adapt much because while I play, I always work with bowlers and try to come up with plans and ideas on how I can get ahead of the batsmen. The only difference is that I will no longer be in the middle or in the middle!
"I never thought I would be the best wicket taker in IPL history. But I'm just happy to be a part of IPL history!" Bravo said.
Chennai Super Kings CEO K.S Viswanathan said, “Congratulations to Dwayne Bravo on his great career at IPL. He has been a crucial member of the Super Kings family for over a decade, and we look forward to continuing the association. Bravo's extensive experience will be invaluable to our players and support staff. We are confident that our bowling group will thrive under his leadership."
