Dwayne Bravo is this week’s Cricket World Player of the Week for his all-round performance in the opening match of the IPL 2018 that helped Chennai Super Kings to win, against Mumbai Indians, in the last over and the Man of the Match award for Bravo as well.

Having bowled a tidy spell earlier in the match (4 over for 25 runs) helping to restrict Mumbai Indians to 169-9, Dwayne Bravo then hit a memorable 68 helping Chennai, who required 47 runs off 18 balls, to a fantastic win.

At the beginning of the 18th over he was facing Mitchell McClenaghan - The first ball went straight past the bowler for  six, the next was smashed over mid-wicket for another six and a ball later, a another boundary over mid-wicket.The next over he hit another three sixes before holing out to Rohit Sharma at mid-off – amazing.
