MS Dhoni IPL 2023: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the second most successful captain of IPL. He has made Chennai Super Kings four times champion under his captaincy. Barring the seasons of 2016 and 2017, he has been the regular captain of CSK. However, in 2022, the franchise made Ravindra Jadeja the captain of the team. But Jadeja resigned after captaining the half season. After which Dhoni again took over the reins of the team. Even in the 16th season of IPL, MS Dhoni will be seen captaining CSK. If seen in the last few years, then MS Dhoni has definitely been the captain of the team, but the batting is no longer the same. For the last three years, each and every run of Dhoni is costing CSK dearly. CSK can’t fit him in securely anywhere now.
Dhoni’s performance in 3 years was like this
MS Dhoni played 44 matches in three seasons i.e. from IPL 2020 to 2022. In these three seasons of the Indian Premier League, only 546 runs came out of his bat. During this, his average was 24.81 and strike rate was 116.91. These figures show that MS Dhoni’s performance in IPL has been very poor in the last three years. During this, Chennai Super Kings gave him about 60 crores as salary. Now you can imagine how expensive each and every run of Dhoni is costing CSK.
Dhoni’s IPL career
There is no doubt that MS Dhoni is one of the most successful batsmen of IPL. He has scored 4978 runs in 206 innings of 234 matches of IPL. After scoring 22 runs in the 16th season, Dhoni will join the select few IPL batsmen who have scored 5,000 or more runs in the league. He has scored 24 half-centuries in IPL so far. Indian Premier League is 84 not out. This is probably the last IPL for MS Dhoni. In such a situation, he would like to win another trophy for his team.
