The 2021 champions Chennai Super Kings have appointed former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo as the team’s bowling coach ahead of IPL 2023. The veteran all-rounder has remained associated with the CSK for a long term now.

Earlier in November, the franchise had let go of Bravo, whose numbers in bowling as well as batting had been declining. Hence, the player has now retired from the IPL and will now take up the role of the bowling coach. The former will now replace Lakshmipathy Balaji, who announced a break from the role due to personal reasons.

“I’m looking forward to this new journey because it’s something I see myself doing after my playing days are fully over,” Bravo after CSK appointed him the bowling coach.

“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,” Bravo added.

Dwayne Bravo IPL stats

CSK acquired Bravo in 2011, who went on to become the tournament’s leading wicket-taker with 183 wickets in 161 games. He played for Gujarat Lions between the 2016-18 seasons when CSK and Rajasthan Royals were suspended from the tournament.

During Bravo’s association with CSK, the franchise went on to win three titles (in 2011, 2018, and 2020). Moreover, he bagged Purple cap titles in the 2013 and 2015 editions. He also holds the joint record of bagging the most number of wickets in a single season with 32 wickets under his name.

CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan lauded Bravo as he said: “Congratulations to Dwayne Bravo on a tremendous career in the IPL. He has been a crucial member of the Super Kings family for more than a decade and we are excited to continue the association”.
