IPL 2019: 3 CSK Players to watch out for
Another edition of the world's biggest T20 festival is just around the corner as it is expected to begin from March 23. The tournament is expected to capture a lot of interest from the viewers.
Defending champions, Chennai Super Kings is one of the only two teams to lift the IPL trophy thrice alongside Mumbai Indians. They will try their best to defend the title and to add yet another trophy to their cabinet.
CSK's side for this season is almost the same as the last season as there have been very few changes in their squad. Last season, their batting won them the tournament. So they will expect their batsmen to replicate the same performances in this season as well.
Here, we will take a look at three CSK players to watch out for in forthcoming edition of IPL.
#3 Dwayne Bravo
The Trinidadian all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo is one of those players who plays in various T20 leagues all around the globe. He has a lot of experience of T20 cricket and that makes him a must-have player in the format.
The T20 specialist will be very important for CSK in the upcoming season of IPL as he is someone who is equally good in all the three departments. His bowling in death overs will be very crucial for the franchise.
Bravo's IPL numbers are quite impressive as he has picked 136 wickets from 122 matches at an average of 24.18 and economy rate of 8.44 with 4/22 being his best bowling figures. Considering the fact that he generally bowls in slog overs, his economy rate is quite good.
As far as his batting performance is concerned, he has scored 1403 runs from 93 innings at an average of 23.78 and strike rate of 128.72 with 70 being his highest score.
The 35-year-old recently took retirement from the international cricket and is currently playing in the Big Bash League.
It will be very interesting to see how Bravo performs in the 12th season of the Indian Premier League after bidding goodbye to the international cricket.
