Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), has already begun preparing for the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
MS Dhoni loves to be ready before the Indian T20 league’s new season begins, even if there is plenty of time. To stay relevant since the former India captain retired from international cricket, Dhoni begins training months in advance of the start of the new season.
Pictures and videos of Dhoni training out at the International Stadium Complex have gone viral. The CSK captain was spotted practicing his batting skills.
Dhoni hopes to turn things around for CSK when the four-time winners compete in the IPL in 2023. The latest season of the Indian T20 league did not go as planned. Dhoni gave over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja at the start of the season.
For eight games, the all-rounder commanded the club yet appeared powerless at times. It also appeared to have an impact on his individual performance. As a result, Jadeja relinquished the captaincy, and Dhoni assumed command once more.
MS Dhoni has confirmed that he will remain with CSK for the IPL 2023 season:
The IPL’s second-most successful skipper did win a couple of games after reclaiming command, but it wasn’t enough for Chennai to advance to the playoffs. The four-time champions had a disappointing season, finishing in sixth place with four victories from 14 games.
Dhoni has stated that he will continue to play for CSK in the IPL 2023, much to the pleasure of his fans. The Chennai-based club announced earlier this month that their captain will once again play in front of their home crowd when the IPL returns to its original home and away structure.
The CSK captain’s strike rate in the last two IPL seasons has been around 130. In 16 matches during the IPL 2022 season, he scored 232 runs. The wicketkeeper-inability batter’s to complete games has harmed CSK.
The 41-year-old wants to make a big impression, so he starts training well in advance. The opposition teams do not want to see a deadly Dhoni.
