Former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is among the greatest T20 cricketers already and he is known for keeping the crowds on their toes when it comes to entertainment. With a lot of different dance moves and singing, Bravo has enjoyed his cricket everywhere around the world and no wonder, he has made a lot of friends as well. The 38-year-old recently announced his retirement from international cricket after the T20 World Cup 2021. With 167 wickets in 151 IPL games, Bravo ranks second among the highest wicket takers in the history of the tournament. However, he was available for the IPL this year and was listed at a base price of INR 2 Crore.
The Chennai Super Kings after a bidding war against Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Delhi Capitals, bought back his services for INR 4.4 Crores and will be joining his former team mate Ambati Rayudu as well in the CSK setup. Rayudu was bagged for a price of INR 6.75 Crore and both these cricketers have been instrumental in the success of the CSK side. Bravo revealed his hilarious conversation with Rayudu during the build up to IPL 2022 mega auction as both the cricketers were going hard against each other in terms of roasting. He added that in the end, both the players have been happy to be back in the CSK setup and to be playing together again.
“I am his biggest nightmare. We both were messaging each other on Instagram throughout the entire auction process and the build up to the auction. ‘Oh you’re going to go unsold. No one is going to buy you.’ All these rubbish talks with each other. But we both wanted to be back in CSK and I know he was happy for me, I was happy for him that we are going to be back again,” Dwayne Bravo told in a video posted on CSK’s Twitter handle.
Bravo reckoned that Rayudu wasn’t much interested in going to any other franchise and noted that he would be arguing with the latter again in the upcoming season in a funny way. CSK will start as the defending champions of IPL 2022 and they will play the opening encounter against the runners up last year, Kolkata Knight Riders on March 26th. “Amba did not want to play for another franchise. He irritates me too much now so I am going to stay away from him. We’re going to fight again as normal this season. As long as we keep fighting and keep winning, that’s important,” he added.
