Former Indian cricketer and head coach Ravi Shastri was extremely complimentary of the great captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni. The IPL 2023 season is currently in its last stretch, and the yellow brigade are on the verge of qualifying for the playoffs.
Shastri praised Dhoni, saying the 41-year-old has the instinct to find the optimum combinations, as he reflected on CSK’s campaign and their chances of reaching the play-offs. He further noted that the team won’t look to chop and change with the play-offs approaching unless they need to cope with an injury.
He (MS Dhoni) is an expert at putting together combinations. It makes sense and is intuitive. Probably sticking with a guy who won’t be great in 2022 but has the vision to think he’ll be great in 2023, giving him the courage to put in the work in 2022. planning in advance. With fewer players, he would have accomplished that. That won’t surprise me. There, I’m not involved at all. On ESPNcricinfo, Ravi Shastri stated, “I won’t know.
But it is undeniable that he thinks in that way. When you look at this squad right now, who appears to be going all the way to the playoffs and to be very dangerous there after two games in Chennai, you can tell that they are a team that can compete. Since it has already been resolved. There won’t be any tweaking unless there is an injury. Apart from that, they’ve got it right,” he continued.
CSK aiming for record fifth championship
With regard to their current campaign, the Men in Yellow are now ranked second on the IPL Points Table with 13 points from six victories (one resulted in a tie). CSK will want to sustain their strong run and formally secure their berth in the upcoming games, as they still have three group games left to play in their campaign.
After the 16th edition, there have been rumors that Dhoni may retire, therefore the team will be driven to win a fifth championship to give the captain a proper send-off. On May 10, CSK and Delhi square off at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium.
