Dwayne Bravo has heaped praise on MS Dhoni and stated that the Indian cricketer has the ability to perform well even in the pressure games. The all-rounder has also added that he enjoyed those five years when he played for the Chennai team and learnt a lot from the former Indian skipper.

The auction for the next season of the Indian Premier League is just around the corner and this time the fans will see the mega show as Chennai Super Kings are ready to make their comeback in the league after serving a two-year-suspension. Before the auction, the Chennai-based franchise gave one more big reason to their supporters by retaining Dhoni, Suresh Raina, and Ravindra Jadeja. Bravo is among the favorites to be retained and but now the team might use the Right-To-Match card on him at the auction. The Windies all-rounder, who last season had played for Gujarat Lions, seemed eager to join the Chennai team again.

"I enjoyed the five years I had spent with CSK. That's my best five years in IPL. I became more matured as a player. MS helped a lot with the way of understanding the game, especially T20I cricket. It's always good to have someone like him [in the team]," Bravo said during Star Sports' analysis show "Game Plan - The Marquee List".

"Playing under MS [Dhoni] is always a pleasure because he takes a lot of pressure off you and there is a lot to learn from him.”

The two-time champions will definitely look forward to using their RTM option for the death-over specialist who is performing brilliantly in the ongoing Big Bash League where he grabbed 12 wickets for Melbourne Renegades in seven matches so far. After playing for Mumbai Indians, Bravo joined CSK team in 2011 and became a crucial part. The 34-year-old became the first cricketer to win the purple cap twice after securing the award in 2013 and 2015 by bagging 32 and 26 wickets respectively.

"For me, I never set myself to be a purple cap winner. It happened naturally. I enjoy the challenge of bowling at the death," Bravo said.

"I love the challenge and extra responsibility. Especially, when playing with CSK. MS [Dhoni] trusts my ability to bowl at the death and finish off games."
