After L Balaji made the decision to take a year off due to personal commitments, Bravo, who has participated in the tournament since its inception in 2008, will take his place as the tournament’s captain.

I’m looking forward to this new journey because it’s something I plan to do after I stop playing.This is a position I’m excited about because I enjoy working with bowlers.

I don’t think I need to change much from player to coach because I always work with bowlers to come up with plans and ideas for getting one step ahead of the batsmen when I’m playing.Bravo stated, “The only difference will be that I will no longer be standing at mid-on or mid-off.”

I had no idea I would become the IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker.But just being a part of IPL history makes me happy!Added he.

With 183 wickets from 161 matches, Bravo holds the record for the most wickets taken in the IPL.
