IPL 2023: Even though Chennai Super Kings won their second game of IPL 2023 against Lucknow Super Giants, captain MS Dhoni was not happy with his bowlers and even jokingly threatened to resign if they didn’t improve. In particular, the pacers let up a lot of runs in the first two games, and it is an area where the four-time winners need to improve right away. Meanwhile, bowling coach Dwayne Bravo noted that yorkers without any pace would not be advantageous for any bowlers before their upcoming game against the Mumbai Indians.

However, he encourages the death bowlers to succeed because he knows that bowling yorkers are one of the most challenging duties. In addition to disclosing the “secret formula” for bowling in the dying overs, he also encourages the players to find their styles.

“There is a particular template to follow. We all in the bowling group (Eric Simons) and the coach (Stephen Fleming) agree and understand the bowling philosophy. So it’s a work in progress. They (bowlers) have to develop their style, and we have to encourage them and stick to the basics. You must put in the hours to practice and get other options over and around the wicket, bowling wide, bowling straight, and so on. There was a big improvement from the first game”, Bravo said.

The former captain of the West Indies further stated that when a pacemaker is under any kind of coercion, yorkers are the best option. He thinks the hitters find hitting challenging, so he wants his bowlers to do it well.

“At this moment, if you don’t have pace and bowl a yorker, you will not survive. Unless you bowl quickly, like 150-plus kph, you will not survive, and even if you bowl at 150-plus kph, there comes a moment when you must rely on your yorker. It’s the most difficult to bowl and the safest option when under pressure in the back end of the innings. Yorkers are going to balls once you can execute. A batter can’t hit”, said Dwayne Bravo.

To compensate for his lack of pace, according to Bravo, he bowled slower balls in sub-continental conditions where batters would have to use their power to maneuver. The young pace battery of Chennai Super Kings, which has struggled to control the run flow in the death, is receiving it from Bravo. Bravo held the audience spellbound with his death bowling during his time with CSK.

Bravo would frequently send down a penetrating yorker in style and then nonchalantly follow it up with a slower one to deceive the batter so simply. The West Indian, who has taken on the new position of the team’s bowling coach, thinks his team’s speedsters need to work on their death bowling.
