CHENNAI, March 2: England paceman Mark Wood today said he wants to pick the brains of former India skipper M S Dhoni and West Indies allrounder Dwayne Bravo and emerge as a �match winner� for Chennai Super Kings during next month�s Indian Premier League.

�I think learning to cope in pressure situations can only help. And picking the brains of some of the legends of the game... MS Dhoni as my captain will provide a great insight and I would love to work with (Dwayne) Bravo and develop my slower ball,� the 28-year-old Wood said.

Wood said he was �immensely proud� to get to play for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL.

�It will be an immensely proud moment for me to play for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL,� Wood was quoted as saying by the CSK website.

�Not only is the IPL a great competition but I also get to play for the best team! Who wouldn�t want that? I�m very lucky and hope to be a match-winner for my team,� he added.

The highly-rated Durham bowler, who regularly clocks 140 kmph, said he wants to thrive under pressure.

�Of course there is pressure but that�s what really switches you on,� the English cricketer said, speaking about the expectation of spearheading CSK�s bowling attack along with the latest South African pace bowling star Lungi Ngidi and Shardul Thakur.

�It might not go your way every time but if you give everything you�ve got and commit to every ball, then, hopefully, you come out on the right side more often than not,� Wood said.

CSK�s CEO KS Viswanathan said the team was looking at someone who could regularly bowl at 140kmph and head coach Stephen Fleming felt Wood could be a good option and do well in the IPL. � PTI
