Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has said that playing any game against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) is like playing a final. His comments came after his team won a match against MI by 20 runs.
MI bowlers started with a bang and reduced CSK to 47 for four. But opener Ruturaj Gaikwad continued to attack from the other end and scored an unbeaten 88 to lead CSK to 156/6 from 20 overs. He shared crucial partnerships with Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo.
Later, the CSK bowler didn’t let the rivals score. Bravo took three wickets and the MS Dhoni-led team restricted Mumbai Indians to just 136 runs.
“It’s a good feeling, obviously against MI it’s the toughest team in the IPL and it’s like a final playing against them, always a good feeling to win. Just tried to protect myself in the last stages of CPL and when I came over here, just had one bowling session which was yesterday, and happy to get four overs through today.
“Now I bat lower down the order with the batting line-up like CSK, for me, it’s just about trying to get the momentum and try to capitalize, adjust and adapt,” Bravo told at the post-match presentation ceremony.
