The curtain-raiser between the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had some standout performances in both innings. While the new skipper Ravindra Jadeja and his predecessor MS Dhoni carried out the rescue act for CSK after they were reduced to 61/5, there was one of their key players who made his presence felt with the ball in hand. The person in discussion is Dwayne Bravo.

DJ Bravo did not get a chance to add finishing touches to Chennai’s innings with the bat in the death overs but, he did chip in with the ball in hand and got rid of the dangerous Venkatesh Iyer. The Caribbean megastar celebrated uniquely after getting rid of the batter. It is to be noted that this is a unique yet different celebration from the rest.

This incident took place immediately after the Powerplay. The former Windies all-rounder came to bowl the seventh over. On the second delivery, Bravo bowled a full one well outside the off-stump as Iyer attempted to drive that one through the covers, but the ball took the outside edge and went straight into the gloves of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who made absolutely no mistake behind the stumps.

While CSK rejoiced at the southpaw’s dismissal, it was Dwayne Bravo’s dance that stood out. The two-time T20 World Cup winner was seen rotating his index finger mid-air and also swinging the hips with the right hand.

Coming back to the contest, the coin landed in favor of KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer and he invited CSK to bat first. The move was spot on as Umesh Yadav accounted for last season’s IPL Orange Cap winner Ruturaj Gaikwad for a duck in the very first over. The four-time winners then suffered a batting collapse before veteran MS Dhoni added finishing touches despite starting off slowly as he scored an unbeaten 50 runs off 38 deliveries to propel the title-holders to a respectable total of 131/5 from their allotted 20 overs.
