Bravo retires from the IPL as a player

Dwayne Bravo has retired from the IPL as a player, and taken over a position as the bowling coach at Chennai Super Kings.

Laximan Balaji, Super Kings' bowling coach until last season, has taken a break for one year for what the franchise called "personal commitments", but will be involved with the Super Kings Academy.

Bravo said he’s looking forward to this new journey because it's something he sees myself doing after his playing days are fully over.

Bravo has played the IPL every year since it started in 2008 except in 2017, when an injury prevented him from turning out for Gujarat Lions.

He had first been signed up by Mumbai Indians in 2008, and was with the team for three seasons before being bought by Super Kings at the 2011 auction.

When Super Kings were suspended for two seasons (2016 and 2017) Bravo was picked by Lions, before being retained by Super Kings in 2018.

He finished with 183 wickets, the highest wicket-taker after 15 seasons of IPL, 13 more than the second-placed Lasith Malinga, and 17 more than the next active bowler with the most success, Yuzvendra Chahal.
