West Indies all rounder and Chennai Super Kings' key player Dwayne Bravo on Thursday said Indian Premier League enhances players’ skills and every team has some high profile coaches to iron out the flaws.

Bravo reiterated that the West Indies would pose a threat to all the teams in the coming World Cup as it had a sledgehammer in Chris Gayle and the dangerous Andre Russell who has been in great form in the IPL.

“I think IPL helps domestic players. It also helps international players. You are being coached by some of the best coaches in the world.

I think that is the beauty of IPL. Players get an opportunity to improve their skills”, Bravo, here for a promotional event, said.

The all-rounder said he enjoyed a lot playing for CSK.

“It is one of my favourite teams... It is my biggest fan base overseas, it is no secret. It is always good to wear the yellow jersey,” he said.

About the West Indies’ chances at the World Cup, he said, “the chances of West Indies winning the cup are just as good as every other team’s.... West Indies is just as good as any other team.”

“Universal boss (Chris Gayle) is there. Andre Russell is there. (Shannon) Gabriel is there. So they have very good players, all match winners. So look out for them.”

Bravo also reaffirmed his admiration for M.S. Dhoni’s leadership and again termed him the best captain he has played under.

“It is no secret. I love, I can say so much about MSD's leadership... everyone knows. He is the best in the world,” he added.
