Dwayne Bravo of CSK Has Announced His Retirement From the IPL and Will Take Over as Bowling Coach for CSK in the IPL 2023
In a significant event, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League (IPL) as a player and would be seen donning the yellow jersey for CSK as a bowling coach in the Tata IPL 2023.
Dwayne Bravo will no longer be a part of CSK’s playing squad after 10 years of service as a superb all-rounder. Bravo expressed his delight at his new post as bowling coach of the CSK in IPL 2023, which he believes is well suited to him because he enjoys working with the bowlers in the club.
“I’m excited about this new adventure since it’s something I envision me doing after my playing days are done,” Bravo stated of his new role. “I enjoy dealing with bowlers, and this is an exciting task for me.”

He said that his style won’t change much as he moves from being a player to being a coach. The only thing that will be different is that he won’t be on the field during the game.
“I don’t think I’ll have to change much from being a player to a coach because, when I’m playing, I always work with the bowlers and try to come up with plans and ideas for getting ahead of the batsmen. The only difference is that I won’t be standing in the middle of the field anymore,” Bravo said.
The 39-year-old cricketer, who has won three IPL titles, has ended his career as the player with the most wickets in the history of the league. He played in 161 IPL games over the course of his career and took 183 wickets. Also, his contributions as a batter are the real cherry on top. Bravo has mustered over 1500 runs in 113 IPL innings.
“I never thought I’d be the IPL player with the most wickets ever. But I’m just glad to be a part of IPL history!” Bravo said. Bravo will only be CSK’s bowling coach for the Tata IPL 2023. He will replace L Balaji, who is not playing in the next IPL season because of personal obligations, the team said.
When the cricket player decided to stop playing in the IPL, good wishes came from all over the world. The franchise CEO, Kasi Vishwanathan, said to Dwayne Bravo, “Congratulations to Dwayne Bravo on a great career in the IPL.
He’s been an important part of the Super Kings family for more than a decade, and we’re happy to keep working with him. Our players and support staff will be able to learn a lot from Bravo’s many years of experience. We’re sure that our bowling group will do well with him in charge.”
