“He creates an environment where people feel comfortable and everyone relaxes; he doesn’t behave like a superstar despite all his accolades and achievements,” Bravo said.
In normal circumstances, Bravo and Dhoni would have been currently playing in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League but due to coronavirus pandemic the tournament was postponed by the BCCI.
“CSK over the years have had many good captains in their dressing room. We’ve had Faf du Plessis, Brendon McCullum, myself, Mike Hussey,” Bravo said in a video uploaded on ESPNCricinfo.
“These guys have been leaders in various countries, but MS (Dhoni) is the type of person who always says that ”you are here because you”re good enough, so when you come here, you don’t need to prove anything to anyone. The franchise sees and it knows what you can offer. Just be yourself”.”
