Dwayne Bravo on Friday announced that he has decided to retire from the Indian Premier League and continue with Chennai SuperKings as their bowling coach.
Bravo was let go by the franchise ahead of the upcoming IPL 2023 auction after being an integral part of the championship winning sides under MS Dhoni. CSK has announced the West Indies all-rounder as their new bowling coach with Laxmipathy Balaji taking a break for a year. Bravo opened up on his excitement in taking the role and said he was happy to be 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!
