Caribbean all-rounder Dwayne Bravo claimed MS Dhoni is one of the best captains. Both are playing for IPL team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the long time where Dhoni leads Bravo and the other members superbly to maintain the high-quality performance on the field.
Since 2011, MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo were teammates for the IPL team CSK until the team faced last two-year suspension from IPL. Coming back in the ongoing season (IPL 2018), CSK retained Dhoni as their captain while Bravo was brought back into the team through the RTM card.

Speaking about MS Dhoni, Bravo claimed as per CSK website, “As a leader, he is one of the best that has every played the game, he allows players to express themselves, allows them to learn from their mistakes. He’s very cool, very calm and that’s very good.”
Bravo also credited Dhoni for his death-over bowling development as he quoted, “He has shown a lot of faith in me, the trust. For me, it’s all about preparation. I always like bowling to MS in the end (in practice sessions) as he is one of the best finishers in the game and I challenge myself by bowling to him. I always give him a scenario, sometimes I win and sometimes he wins.”
Making comeback in the IPL tournament from this season, two-time IPL champions CSK will take on record three-time IPL winners and defending champions Mumbai Indians in the opening game of this season at Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai) on April 7.
Bravo mentioned that match as the El Clasico as he quoted, “It’s really the El Clasico, two of the biggest franchises in IPL history… two of the most successful franchises. I’m looking forward to it… everyone’s looking forward to it. I don’t think there can be a bigger tournament opener than this one.”
The 34-years old all-rounder further added, “These kinds of games, they really get me going.”
He also pointed out that the starting point is very important for any team in an IPL season. He told, “The start (to a season) is very important, especially in a tournament like the IPL where all the teams are very, very good. It’s a tournament where anything is possible and so you want to start well. It gives you that momentum. It can get a little difficult for teams to recover later on in the tournament.
