Deep Dasgupta believes in Dwayne Bravo in the Indian Premier League. Dasgupta felt the 14th over within the first innings. Where Chennai Super Kings got their first breakthrough within the form of Kohli’s wicket. He was a huge turning point within the CSK win last night. RCB was 111-0 earlier to the slight in IPL 2021. MS Dhoni reintroduced him back into the attack. After he went for 9 runs in his first over. Also, the second ball of the over yielded Kohli’s wicket. They found Ravindra Jadeja at deep midwicket.
Dasgupta pointed out the value of experience. Also, give praises to Bravo for bowling smartly. He tactfully used a blend of slower deliveries and wide yorkers to good effect.
“Bravo’s over, the 14th over was a turning point, where he took the wicket of Kohli. From there on, it changed everything. The value of the experience was on display once again. He bowled wide yorkers, which was smart since the boundaries square of the wicket were bigger than down the ground,” Dasgupta said.
Deep Dasgupta believes, Moreover, following Kohli’s dismissal, Bangalore could only muster 45 runs off 40 deliveries. The batting becomes difficult with the old ball on a Sharjah surface.
Lastly, Royal Challengers Bangalore was eyeing a score. Also, in the bracket of 180-200 on the basis of the start. They got and the courage of their middle order. But the Chennai bowlers were on point, making the best of the conditions. It is to make life difficult for their batsmen, who had to get going from the word go.

“It was interesting to see how RCB, from such a dominant position, lost control. They were 90-0 at one point, the game changed from there and in the last 10 overs only brought 66 runs for them. With that kind of a middle-order, with so many power hitters, that tells you when there are pitches like these, where the ball does not come onto the bat, it becomes very difficult for power hitters to score. Shot selection is very tricky in such cases.”
