Post his retirement from the league, West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was appointed as the Bowling Coach of CSK ahead of IPL 2023. Holding the record for the most wickets in a season, Bravo won the Purple Cap twice in 2013 and in 2015. His bowling was a big mystery to pick by the batsman at the striker's end. Before joining the coaching staff, he left a long legacy as a bowler in the IPL. His experience in the T20I franchise cricket would be great for the CSK bowling attack this season.
