Indian Premier League 2018 auction isn't too far and eyes will be on the T20 specialist Dwayne Bravo. Franchises will be ready to throw everything on the West Indies all-rounder. However, there are high chances that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will get him.

Bravo has represented CSK for long and said he enjoys playing under MS Dhoni because of the latter's ability to take pressure off his teammates. He mixes up with fans really nicely and that's one of the reasons local crowd of Chennai loves him. 

Bravo is having an impactful season in Big Bash and CSK may get him considering his form and all-round ability by Right-To-Match (RTM) card.

He talked about playing under MS Dhoni and called it his best five years of IPL. "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.

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

"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."

Bravo revealed last year he had given up on his dreams of an international return after a lengthy absence from cricket following a hamstring injury in 2016. He was forced to skip last season's IPL and only returned in August 2017 for Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
