Sam Curran’s performance ‘takes pressure off rushing Dwayne Bravo back’ – Stephen Fleming

Sam Curran‘s “attitude” in pressure moments, his all-round skills, and performance in Chennai Super Kings’ win in the IPL 2020 opener against Mumbai Indians on Saturday has meant the team doesn’t have to worry about the absence of the injured Dwayne Bravo, coach Stephen Fleming feels. Bravo’s recovery – from a knee injury – is being monitored even as the Super Kings prepare for two matches in the coming week.

“Bravo is progressing; we are working closely to get him up to 100 per cent,” Fleming told the team’s website. “We’ve got three quick games in a row [including the opening fixture], so we’ll look at each game and monitor him each time we train.

“With Sam’s performance, it takes a bit of pressure off rushing Bravo back, but he’s one of the world’s best and to have him in the selection equation is very important to us.”
