MS Dhoni will be returning to competitive cricket after 2019 World Cup. All focus will be on him as the CSK captain had announced his retirement and has gone days without playing cricket. Commentator-cum-analyst Aakash Chopra, in his YouTube video, looked at the strength and weakness of CSK.
Chopra said that MS Dhoni is the biggest strength for CSK and the entire franchise is dependent on him. He also added that Chopra is the soul of CSK and as long as he is in the team they will keep moving forward. The former India batsman however pointed out that he is unsure if Dhoni will hit the ground running but will surely rule the roost once the season gets underway.
“MS Dhoni is the biggest strength of the team. The entire franchise is dependent on him. He is the soul of Chennai Super Kings. As long as he is there, CSK’s heart keeps beating and they move forward. MS Dhoni, the player and the captain, has a great impact,” Aakash Chopra said in his latest YouTube show.
“MS Dhoni, the batsman, we haven’t seen him in a long while. There are questions as to whether he will be able to hit the ground running or bat the way he used to in the past. Keep in mind, he is very experienced, and you don’t get experience in the supermarket.
“This team, as I said before… Dhoni is the life and soul of this team. He is the one who is going to get the best out of everyone.
“MS Dhoni, the batsman, is important because when spin takes precedence, his influence will grow. He may not hit the ground running, but as the tournament progresses, I am pretty sure MS Dhoni is going to rule the roost.”
Dhoni made a big name for himself by making the country proud with his achievements after coming from the cricketing backwaters of Ranchi. He has achieved immense success as a player and also grew up to be one of the most successful captains and achieved almost everything the ICC tournaments had to offer.
All the success had made him one of the most influential person on the cricketing circuit but he was not the same when he was first introduced to the national team. Besides that, MS Dhoni has also been the go-to man for his teammates whenever he was on the field.
Dhoni understood the game well. He knew the strength of the side and backs his players accordingly. He did not takes any kind of frivolous decisions and likes to maintain his calm. It is due to these qualities Dhoni came up as one of the most calm and composed character on the cricket field.
