CSK has already won four IPL championships under MS Dhoni’s leadership. The only captain to have won more trophies is Rohit Sharma.
Suresh Raina, a former Indian batsman, praised MS Dhoni, captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), for his “simple” strategies against the Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2023 on Tuesday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
To set a new record and advance to their tenth IPL final, CSK defeated GT by a margin of 15 runs. The four-time IPL champion claimed after the game that Dhoni is the clear favorite to win the league this year. Additionally, Raina remembered his conversation with CSK star batter Ruturaj Gaikwad. Who informed him that the CSK team as a whole wanted Dhoni to win the IPL.
Take a look at how they made it to the Finals—14 of the Season 10 Finals—”I think it’s a fantastic accomplishment. MS Dhoni kept things straightforward. He deserves praise, and Ruturaj (Gaikwad) had previously informed me that CSK wanted Dhoni to win the championship. “
During a Jio Cinema interview, Raina stated that the entire nation of India wanted Dhoni to win the IPL.
“What we witnessed today is that it’s extremely difficult to defeat Chennai on this field. He is named Mahendra Singh Dhoni because he transforms everything he touches into gold, the speaker continued. “
Dhoni is notable for having already led CSK to four IPL championships. The only IPL captain with more trophies is Rohit Sharma, who has five.
MS Dhoni, the captain of CSK, stated after the game that he would not be rushing to make a decision about his future and would wait another 8 to 9 months before making one about retirement.
There have been rumors that Dhoni’s final season might be in 2023.
“I have eight to nine months to make a decision. Why do that headache right now. I have time to think it over. After leading CSK to their 10th IPL final, Dhoni announced the auction will take place in December at the post-game presentation.”
