Dwayne Bravo Becomes First to Pick Up 100 Wickets for CSK in IPL
Dwayne Bravo became the first bowler to take 100 wickets for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL during their match against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday, 3 April.
The Windies all-rounder reached the landmark when he took the crucial wicket of Suryakumar Yadav (59 off 43 balls) in the 18th over.
In the list of most wickets for CSK, the 35-year-old Bravo is followed by Ravichandran (90) and Albie Morkel (76) – both of who are no more with the franchise.
Bravo now also has the fourth-highest number of wickets by a cricketer for one IPL team.
The match however, also marked defending champions CSK’s first loss of the season as they went down by 37 runs.
Invited to bat on a track that offered good bounce, Mumbai creamed 29 runs in final over with Hardik doing the bulk of scoring, his eight-ball 25-run blitzkrieg bringing the high-flying visitors to earth.
Struggling at 50 for three at one point, Mumbai raked in 45 runs in the last two overs to post 170 for five and then halted their rivals at 133 for eight to post their second win in four games. This was Super Kings' maiden defeat and they remained on top of the table with six points.
