Bravo shines

CHENNAI, India (CMC):

Impressive death bowling by West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo stifled an easy run chase and fired Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to a two-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) yesterday. Bravo grabbed three wickets for 22 runs from three overs, while fellow West Indian AndrÈ Russell, who was run out for four during the chase, finished with two for 26 from four overs, removing the wickets of Suresh Raina for 17 and MS Dhoni for three. The tight bowling restricted KKR to 132 for nine in 20 overs. CSK had earlier made a paltry 134.
