Will Dwayne Bravo Be Able To Shine In This Tournament After A Poor IPL 2020?
The IPL 2020 was a nightmare for Dwayne Bravo. The all-rounder failed to make an impact on the competition. He was just not able to find his groove and things didn’t work out well for him. He was in and out of the Chennai Super Kings team. There was never a moment in the competition where he looked really settled and things did not work out for him.
