The Chennai Braves is one of the newest teams in the Abu Dhabi T10 league that made their debut in the year 2021-22. Lalit Dulani, the President and CEO of Agrifresh Foodstuff LLC, holds the ownership right of the Chennai Braves but the team could not give their best in the last edition of the tournament and ended up with the last position in the list by winning only a single match out of their 10 matches.
The responsibility of the head coach has been given to Dougie Brown in order to make improvements in the squad. Dasun Shanaka, a Sri Lankan player, captained the club throughout its debut season, and the club has chosen him to be their "icon" player for the upcoming iteration of the Abu Dhabi T10 league 2022.
The Chennai Braves just completed one campaign in 2021-22, so they lack a significant amount of experience, but they did a phenomenal job in planning for the following iteration, which will be played in 2022. Shanaka is still most likely to captain the group once more in the upcoming season of the Abu Dhabi T10 league 2022. Only Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been preserved by the team besides Shanaka in their regular roster. To offer their club some all-around possibilities, the Braves have signed players like Carlos Braithwaite, Sikandar Raza, and Laurie Evans.
The additional two quality cricketers who've already entered this year are Mahesh Theekshana, James Fuller, Obed McCoy, and Olly Stone who can change the mood of the game with their bowling. The club has included some powerful hitters like Ben Duckett, Sam Cook, Ross Whiteley, and Sabir Rao. Nevertheless, this squad appears to be an intriguing one considering the number of younger players on it. In light of this, there seems to be a probability that the Chennai Braves may play unexpectedly in the sixth edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 league.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa is the most successful hitter on the team with 249 runs from his 9 matches at the strike rate of 193.02 whereas Mark Deyal is the leading wicket-taker who took 9 wickets from 9 matches.
Chennai Braves will commence their journey in Abu Dhabi T10 league with their first match against New York Strikers on 24th November 2022 in Abu Dhabi.
