Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians
D Bravo – 40 & Over Performance Points @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 3 points

If there ever was a player to be the perfect one for T20 cricket, its Dwayne Bravo. He can bat, can bowl, can field, can catch and can dance a bit as well for entertaining the crowds

Bravo has been a consistent performer throughout his time in the IPL; and I won’t be surprised if he continues to do that. This season, he has taken his bowling to another level as he is the top wicket takers in the league, with 20 wickets from the group stage. While the CSK team have not valued his batting enough to let him bat earlier in the order like he used to earlier, but with some changes in the team, I expect he might be pushed up the order. His fielding has been super exceptional, as he is also the leading catcher having 12 catches in in 14 games, which is almost a catch a game.

In his last few matches, below are his performance points:

v KXI: 20 points (1 wicket)
v DD: 8 points (8 runs)
v RR: 85 points (15 runs, 2 wickets, 3 catches)
v MI: 20 points (1 wicket)
v RCB: 42 points (2 runs, 2 wickets)
v SRH: 85 points (25 runs, 3 wickets)
v KKR: 40 points (30 runs, 1 catch)
v KKR: 85 points (5 runs, 3 wickets, 2 catches)
v KXI: 10 points (1 catch)
v RCB: 45 points (5 runs, 1 wicket, 2 catches)
v RR : 92 points (62 runs, 1 wicket, 1 catch)
v MI : 63 points (13 runs, 2 wickets, 1 catch)
v SRH: 40 points (2 wickets)
v DD : 51 points (1 run, 2 wickets, 1 catch)

With all his exploits through out the season, he is surely in contention to be the man of the series, should Chennai manage to reach the finals and you can expect that only with the special performances from Bravo to help them push through; and on current form, you expect him to continue on that trend and grab the 40 performance points.
