It has been an outing to forget for MS Dhoni and co. in the IPL 2020 but former India women’s team captain Anjum Chopra believes Dhoni should lead CSK for two more years. Dhoni made a big name for himself by making the country proud with his achievements after coming from the cricketing backwaters of Ranchi.
Dhoni 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. However, his performance in the IPL 2020 has been questionable.
MS Dhoni should be at the center of CSK for the next couple of years: Anjum Chopra
“I think he should be (at the center of CSK for the next couple of years). And why not? He is probably the only player who has never been to an auction and he has been a marquee player as well. He deserves to be there as well. Just because one season hasn’t worked for the team collectively, that doesn’t mean the leader is bad,” Anjum Chopra said.
“MS Dhoni is too experienced and too good a player… he has been match-winner. He knows what are the challenges and what are the things that they need to do from hereon. He wouldn’t have won all those titles, if he didn’t know what he was doing. I don’t think, just because one season hasn’t gone in their favour, it should really make a big difference.
“But yes, going forward, MS Dhoni also would be knowing exactly how to revamp this team and change things around so that they start getting results they so desire.”
All the success has 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 is on the field.
Dhoni understands the game well. He knows the strength of the side and backs his players accordingly. He does not takes any kind of frivolous decisions and likes to maintain his calm. It is due to these qualities Dhoni comes up as one of the most calm and composed character on the cricket field.
