MS Dhoni is one of the legends of Cricket and not just Indian Cricket team. His fans love him and respect him to the tee. They desire him to always win and the master has been able pull rabbit under the hat like a magician, many times for his franchise, Chennai Super Kings and Indian National Team for past two decades.
After Sachin Tendulkar, majority of Indian Cricket fans love to see Dhoni and follow him closely. You can observe the kind of viewership he brings to IPL matches when he bats in recent times and the kind of social media frenzy his style of play creates as well. He pulled off a miraculous win for CSK and Ravindra Jedeja bowed down to him, this season.
CSK won against Delhi Capitals on Sunday with a margin of 91 runs after setting a target of 209. Spinners, mainly Moeen Ali, could apply breaks to DC batsmen aggression and resultant victory for CSK has given a hope at qualification. Dhoni did not seem pleased about the opportunity or possibility of qualification as it depends on other team results.
At the presentation, he said that he would love to be qualified on his own than depending on others. Devon Conway’s form and Ruturaj Gaikwad’s turn around has helped CSK secure two big wins in three matches. CSK looked like a clear winner against high scoring Gujarat Titans until the final overs when Rashid Khan took a liking to Chris Jordan.
Also, Ravindra Jadeja did not look entirely confident in running the team and fans hope that whatever might be the result of this season, Dhoni won’t quit captaincy again next season. They feel that he has one more season to offer and before he bows out, he should reshuffle the team as a younger side and be the mentor. Current side with seniors need a calm head like him. Young bowlers like Mukesh Chaterjee and Simranjeet are coming good under his guidance and hence, fans feel that he should have continued with captaincy this season and given Ravindra one or two games in the season, taking rest, according to the place in the Table and chances of qualification.
