Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming has confirmed that all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will be out for another IPL match. Bravo, who led the Trinbago Knight Riders to a CPL title a few days ago, picked up a niggle during the tournament held in Trinidad and Tobago.
“Dwayne (Bravo) was injured so he is probably out for the first two games,” Fleming said at the end of the IPL 2020 opener. “But Sam’s performance was a big positive. His attitude is quite infectious. His performance today was quite outstanding. Straight off the plane yesterday.
“If Dwayne was fit, it would have been a toss-up if he [Curran] had played at all. So he has taken this opportunity and put some pressure on.”
The former New Zealand captain also had high praise for Ambati Rayudu, the chief architect of the run chase yesterday against the Mumbai Indians. “Rayudu has been nothing short of fantastic. He has been pretty emotional and played a great knock,” Fleming said.
Fleming, who had played for the Chennai Super Kings as well, further said that the pitch was “difficult” to score and that the team is looking for ways to find the right balance.
