Bravo has already led CSK & Trinbago to three IPL & CPL titles. Bravo topped the wickets tally in the 2009 Champions League T20, the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013 and 2015, the CPL 2015 and in 2016, the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) in 2016-17, and the Big Bash League (BBL) in 2017-18.

Bravo had called time on his international career in October 2018, and turned his focus to playing franchise T20 cricket around the world.

The former West Indies captain came out of international retirement, making himself available for selection in the West Indies T20I side, while confirming that he didn’t want to play any other format.

Bravo’s variations and his control of the slower ball has made him a potent force in the shortest format.

Last year, he was briefly sidelined from the 2019 IPL with Chennai Super Kings due to a hamstring injury and missed the entire CPL because of a broken finger.

After playing in the ongoing CPL 2020, Bravo will fly on 10th September to UAE to join his teammates in the CSK team for IPL 2020 season beginning on Sep19th.
