Last year, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), had a season that was below par. MS Dhoni resigned as captain a few days before the start date of the 15th Indian Premier League. Ravindra Jadeja took over the position and the four-time champions suffered defeat after successive defeat. Former India player RP Singh said that 2022 was only a glimpse at CSK without MS Dhoni as captain.
Thala took over the leadership role after Jadeja stepped down. He has continued to do so this year as well. CSK didn’t suffer as much last year after a loss in their first match against the defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT). CSK is playing well and has five wins in 10 matches. They are third on the table.
MS Dhoni has put in a lot of work to improve his fitness for this IPL. He has been in great form.
RP Singh says MS Dhoni is very resourceful
RP Singh praised Ranchi-born MS Dhoni for his ability in using limited resources. CSK has injury problems as some key players like Ben Stokes Deepakchahar and Mukesh Chowdhury are out of action. RP Singh stated that Dhoni is still able to maintain his resouces despite being injured.
“We learned what would happen to CSK without him when he resigned as captain before the season began. CSK’s performance without Dhoni was impressive. It will be hard for CSK not to have him as the captain. CSK will experience a transition period for a while when Dhoni leaves,” Singh said on Zee News.
