DJ Bravo on MS Dhoni’s T20I career: Former Windies all-rounder was vocal about his CSK captain MS Dhoni’s T20I career.
Former Windies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo recently expressed his opinion on former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s exclusion from the T20I side. In an interview with Sportskeeda, the 35-year old cricketer laid emphasis on the fact that Dhoni’s T20I career can never be over until he decides it’s over.
On being asked about the same, Bravo was quoted, “Someone like him can never be over until he decides it’s over. There are always talks around, and people call for different players’ heads at different times. It is up to the player.
“I think MS [Dhoni] has proven, even in this year’s IPL he has proven, again and again, that he is still the best in the world and he will decide when it is his time. No one decides when it is his time.”
Having retired from international cricket last month, Bravo currently remains an active member of freelance T20 leagues around the world. Not just T20, Bravo is currently playing for Maratha Arabians in the T10 League in Sharjah.
There is no hiding to the fact that Bravo will go down as a legendary T20 player. Among his vast experience of the format, much of success was gained while playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League and the Champions League T20.
In 91 matches for CSK, Bravo scored 1,123 runs at an average of 30.35 and a strike rate of 137.45. With the ball in hand, Bravo picked up 107 wickets at an average of 22.59 and an economy rate of 8.36.
Throwing accolades at the franchise, Bravo went on to add that ‘Super Kings made his career’ and he would like to finish his career over there.
“I think I can officially say that Chennai Super Kings have made my career. Whatever it is today, is because of the success I had there, how I learnt the game a lot more there. The coaching staff, including Stephen Fleming and captain MS Dhoni, is excellent, the owners put no pressure on the players, and the team they recruit is very good. It is just like a family.
“My biggest fan base is in Chennai and I enjoy representing that city and franchise. I would like to finish my career there,” Bravo added.

The audacity of Dwayne Bravo to not name one of his sons Johnny is appalling
