The first match of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will start in a couple of hours. The Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders. It is considered a rematch of last season’s final. But both teams will play with a new captain. Shreyas Iyer will lead the Kolkata Knight Riders and Ravindra Jadeja will lead CSK. On the other hand, CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has released a new video song just ahead of the first match of the IPL.
Bravo is an active cricketer and has made some songs earlier as well. His song “Champion” was an iconic hit. The all-rounder also created a song dedicated to his friend MS Dhoni, called “Helicopter 7“. His latest song, “Number One” was written by Bravo along with Colin Wedderburn. Black Shadow Music has produced the song.
The all-rounder announced his song by sharing a teaser earlier. Finally, the song was released on March 25. He has shared the video on his Instagram handle. One can also watch the song live on the YouTube platform.
Here’s the complete song, so check it out
The Indian Premier League will start on Saturday at 7:30 PM at the Wankhede Stadium. The all-rounder will be part of the defending champions. Dwayne Bravo will be playing in his 10th season with the CSK. He has been a regular member of the Yellow Army and has performed exceptionally well over the years.
Bravo has been the go-through bowler for the CSK over the years. He has also won two “Purple Caps” while playing for the franchise in 2013 and 2015. The all-rounder is a death specialist and this will be the same role he will be playing in the coming season. However, MS Dhoni has stepped down from the captaincy now and Ravindra Jadeja will be his successor.
Bravo shared an emotion note on his Instagram handle, thankiing MS Dhoni for all those memories. He wrote, “Thank You for everything @mahi7781 your legacy will live on forever!! #Brother @chennaiipl couldn’t ask for a better person to take over @ravindra.jadeja congratulations! 🍾 it’s your time Sir!! #NumberOne.”
CSK won their fourth title in 2021, and they would like to repeat the same performance in the upcoming season. They are placed in Group B, along with SRH, RCB, PBKS, and Gujarat Titans.
