Curran or Bravo? CSK coach gives update on who will play against RR

Chennai Super Kings have suffered a huge blow at the start of the season as the veteran all rounder in Dwayne Bravo sustained an injury and was not available for the selection in the game against Mumbai Indians. The caribbean superstar didn’t bowl in the CPL final that happened on September 10th as well due to his knee injury.

Sam Curran takes pressure off Dwayne Bravo- Stephen Fleming

In a recent interview, CSK's coach Stephen Fleming said that the champion all rounder is progressing at a good pace and they are hopeful of having Dwayne Bravo in the reckoning in the next few games.
Here’s what Stephen Fleming said when asked about Dwayne Bravo.

Bravo is progressing, we are working closely to get him up to 100 percent. We’ve got three quick games in a row, so we’ll look at each game and monitor him each time we train,

The coach also believes that the wonderful show by Sam Curran on his debut for CSK takes pressure off Dwayne Bravo.

“With Sam’s performance, it takes a bit of pressure off rushing Bravo back, but he’s one of the world’s best and to have him in the selection equation is very important to us,” Fleming said.

MS Dhoni trusted Sam Curran- Stephen Fleming

Sam Curran looked like he was a seasoned campaigner in his debut game for CSK. MS Dhoni, who is known to use his resources like no other, utilized the younger Curran to a great extent that he turned out to be a game changer with the bat.

When asked about Sam Curran, Stephen Fleming said,

The things that impressed us with Sam is his attitude first and foremost, almost the harder it gets the better he gets, his all-round skill component and the fact that the captain was able to trust him straightaway to go in at a crucial time and hit the way he did

Sam Curran scored 18 runs from just 6 balls that included 2 maximums. He also was pretty decent with the ball as he took a wicket and gave away just 28 runs in his quota of 4 overs.
