Dwayne Bravo called former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni the biggest superstar of the game, citing that the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman was a big star and yet among the easiest one to interact with. Bravo, who plays under MS Dhoni for Chennai Super Kings in the cash-rich Indian Premier League, was speaking to commentator and former Zimbabwe player Pommie Mbanga in an Instagram live chat and revealed that.
"MS Dhoni is the biggest superstar in cricket and in our team," he shared. "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."
The West Indies all-rounder was bought by Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League auction way back in 2011 and has been with the team since then. He has been playing a key role in their success of the tournament. Bravo has so far played 104 matches for the franchise and also picked up 121 wickets. He has also won the Purple Cap for most wickets twice, in 2013 and 2015 season.
"CSK is a special team and we have the most loyal fans," he said. "I think a lot of credit for CSK's success has to be given to Dhoni and Fleming. Obviously the owners (as well), 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," he concluded.
MS Dhoni has been out of action ever since India have lost to New Zealand in the semi-final of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. Although he was about to return with 2020 IPL, the league has been postponed owing to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country and a call on it will be taken soon.
