Dwayne Bravo Falls for Prank and Humors Team
When it comes to Chennai Super Kings, two names that immediately come to mind are MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo. These two legends of the game have been an integral part of the team's success over the years. While Bravo has retired from IPL cricket and is now serving as a bowling coach for CSK, Dhoni is still leading the team with his trademark calmness and tactical brilliance.
Recently, an event organized by India Cements brought together all the CSK players, and Dhoni and Bravo were seen sitting next to each other on the stage.
In a video shared by CSK on their Instagram handle, a magician can be seen tying a balloon to a stick and giving it to Dhoni, who holds it while Bravo tries to capture the moment. The magician then pulls off a hilarious prank that draws laughter from everyone present, including the two CSK legends.
Other Social Media Antics
This is not the first time that the duo has made headlines for a social media post. During the match against the Lucknow Super Giants, Dhoni took a moment to send a special message to Dwayne Bravo's mother on her 65th birthday. Along with other players from CSK, Dhoni wished "Mummy Bravo" a happy birthday and promised to put a cake on Bravo's face. Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja also joined in wishing Bravo's mother a happy birthday.
Bravo shared the videos on Instagram. He expressed his delight at the victory, which was the perfect gift for his mother's birthday.
Aside from this and in the aftermath of the match, the CSK captain was seen meeting the family of Lucknow all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham, including his wife and daughter, and posing for photos with them. The little girl also got a high-five from the World Cup-winning captain, and pictures of the heartwarming moment were shared by the team's official social media handle.
Krishnappa Gowtham played for Chennai Super Kings in the 2021 IPL season, and fans took to social media to reminisce about his association with the team. They praised Dhoni's gesture, calling him a man with a golden heart. The victory and Dhoni's gesture both made the day memorable for the fans and the team.
CSK's IPL Performance
Work-wise, CSK has had a mixed start to IPL 2023, winning two out of their three matches so far. After losing their opening game against Gujarat Titans (GT), the team bounced back with wins against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Dhoni is leading CSK with his usual calmness and smart tactics, and this might be his last season with the team.
In the first three matches, Dhoni has shown that he still can turn the game in his team's favor with his batting. Despite batting lower down the order, he has turned back the clock on occasions and played some quick-fire innings that have helped his team win matches.
Against Gujarat Titans, he scored a quick-fire 14 off just seven balls, including a six and a four. In the next game against Lucknow Super Giants, he smashed Mark Wood for two back-to-back sixes before getting dismissed.
