West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has said that former India captain MS Dhoni is the biggest cricket superstar and one of the easiest to interact with people. During an Instagram Live chat with former Zimbabwe pacer Pommie Mbangwa, Bravo was asked to talk about his stint with his IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
During the interaction, Bravo told Mbangwa, “I think a lot of credit for CSK’s success has to be given to Dhoni and Fleming, obviously the owners, they trust both Fleming and Dhoni, so there is no outside interference when it comes to decision making, both are very big students of the game, players love MS and it’s an environment and franchise that allows you to be you.”
The West Indies all-rounder further added, “MS Dhoni is the biggest superstar in cricket and in our team. He was one of the easiest people to interact with, outside of the cricket field, he is like playing video games, his door is open at all times, whenever you talk about the biggest superstar and then you think a person like Dhoni is the most humble of them all. CSK is a special team and we have the most loyal fans.”
For the unversed, Dwayne Bravo has been a part of the CSK franchise since 2011. He has played a total of 104 matches for the franchise and has scrapped 121 wickets.
Bravo has also managed to win the Purple Cap two times- 2013 and 2015. CSK has lifted the IPL trophy thrice- 2010, 2011 and 2018 and all under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni has stayed away from cricket since he last played during the ICC World Cup in 2019. There were speculations that Dhoni’s selection in the squad for T20 World Cup will depend on his performance during the IPL.
