Malinga had taken 170 wickets in just 122 matches with an average of 19.79 with a best of 5/10. Malinga has six four-wicket hauls and one five-wicket haul to his name, while Bravo averages 24.01 with two four-wicket hauls to his name and crossed Malinga in his 152nd game.

Malinga, currently working as the fast-bowling coach for the Rajasthan Royals, played only for Mumbai Indians throughout his career. He last represented the franchise in 2019. He skipped the tournament the following year citing personal reasons.

Notably, Bravo also leads the charts for most wickets in all T20 cricket. In 524 matches from 2006, Bravo has taken 575 wickets at an average of 24.08.

It was not enough for CSK as LSG won the match by 6 wickets.
