Former Chennai Super Kings all-rounder and their current bowling coach Dwayne Bravo has shared his opinion on MS Dhoni’s batting position in IPL 2023. Bravo seems to agree with Dhoni’s decision to bat lower down the order.
Notably, Dhoni has batted as high as No. 5 on several occasions in the past, this season he is saving himself and has not batted higher than No. 7. With the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dubey and Ravinda Jadeja in the opening pair of Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaekwad, all in good form, Dhoni hasn’t had much to do with the bat either but has held his own with a few quick cameos whenever he needed to do so in emergency situations. has worked .
“That’s the place he has to bat. Everyone bats higher than him and he takes that responsibility and ownership to bat lower down the order because like Jadeja, Rayudu and Dubey, he wants to give more to these guys. are. As many opportunities as possible. He is happy to just play the final role,” Bravo said at a press conference ahead of CSK’s game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Thursday.
Bravo then spoke about the morale in the CSK camp with the men in yellow topping the points table after 7 matches.
“CSK’s morale is very high, and it has nothing to do with results. We are a team that is usually very level whether we are performing well or not.”
“But it’s always good when we’re doing well. So far, we’ve started the season on a positive note and we just have to keep up the momentum and keep winning cricket games. Tomorrow’s match against RR is going to be a very tough game. . . ,” he added.
