BCCI Welcomes back Dhoni
Notwithstanding not contributing with the bat however much he did during his prime, Dhoni marshaled his team with such intensity. CSK were back in the groove and won the title in the UAE.
MS Dhoni is the best skipper in white-ball cricket with each of the 3 ICC titles – 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 World Cup, 2013 Champions Trophy – in his bureau. He’s drove CSK to triumph in the IPL in 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021.
The 40-year old turned out to be the oldest captain to win the IPL recently. Yet stayed coy with regards to his future with Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2022.
While he insisted that he has still not “left behind” anything at CSK, the influential captain said a lot will depend on the retention and auction rules of IPL 2021, considering the two new teams that will be added to the league next year.
