After his best mate Kieron Pollard, now Dwayne Bravo has called time on his Indian Premier League career. Bravo debuted in the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008 and started his journey with the men in yellow in 2011. Ahead of this year's auction, CSK had not retained Bravo, but he still bows out with 3 IPL trophies. Bravo will now continue with Chennai Super Kings as their bowling coach.

Bravo in a statement said:

I am  looking forward to this new journey because it’s something I see myself doing after my playing days is fully over. I enjoy working with bowlers and it’s a role I’m excited about. From player to coach, I don’t think I have to adjust much because while I’m playing, I always work with bowlers and try to come up with plans and ideas on how to have that one step ahead of the batsmen. The only difference is I will no longer be standing at mid-on or mid-off. I never thought I would be the leading wicket-taker in the history of IPL. But I’m just happy to be a part of IPL history

The CEO of Chennai Super Kings, K.S Viswanathan said:

Congratulations to Dwayne Bravo on a tremendous career in the IPL. He has been a crucial member of the Super Kings family for more than a decade and we are excited to continue the association. Bravo's vast experience will be of immense value to our players and support staff. We are confident that our bowling group will thrive under his guidance.

Bravo has taken 183 wickets in 161 matches. At a strike rate of 130, he has also scored 1560 runs and played a very important role in many victories of Chennai Super Kings. The Caribbean stalwart in particular has played 144 matches for Chennai Super Kings. In this time he has scored 1556 runs and has picked up 168 wickets for the men in yellow.
