Many people believe MS Dhoni to be the greatest cricket captain in history. The ICC T20 World Cup, ICC Champions Trophy, and ICC Cricket World Cup have all only been won by the former Indian cricket team captain.
Additionally, he helped India to win the ICC Test Rankings. In addition, MS Dhoni has guided the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to two Champions League T20 championships and four IPL championships.
Two years after he played his international match, he led his team to an IPL victory, demonstrating the significant difference a captain can make. Under MS Dhoni, a lot of players have reached their full potential.
Because of how long MS Dhoni has served as captain, some former players who played for him are now IPL coaches. These are the top four IPL 2023 coaches.
Here are 4 Coaches Who Player Under MS Dhoni’s Captaincy
1. Punjab Kings Batting Coach- Wasim Jaffer
Prior to the IPL 2023 season, Wasim Jaffer has rejoined the coaching staff of the Punjab Kings. He has been hired by the team as its new batting coach.
In 2008, against South Africa, Wasim Jaffer participated in his final Test match for India. MS Dhoni led the Indian team in that series. In the IPL, MS Dhoni and Jaffer have never shared the field.
2. Gujarat Titans Head Coach- Ashish Nehra
In IPL 2022, Ashish Nehra created history by being the first Indian to win the competition as a franchise’s head coach. In their first season, the newcomers Gujarat Titans named Nehra as their head coach.
The Ahmedabad-based team finished first in the points standings and went on to win the IPL 2022 final on their field thanks to Nehra’s original strategies and composed demeanour. Many supporters would recall Ashish Nehra’s World Cup 2011 performance while MS Dhoni served as captain. He participated in the 2016 T20 World Cup with the Indian team under MS Dhoni.
3. Chennai Super Kings Bowling Coach- Dwayne Bravo
MS Dhoni coached Dwayne Bravo during several IPL seasons. Under Dhoni’s direction, he participated in his final IPL game earlier this year. The former captain of the West Indies announced his IPL retirement. He has now been named the Chennai Super Kings’ new bowling coach.
4. Head coach of Chennai Super Kings- Stephen Fleming
The Chennai Super Kings have been led by Stephen Fleming for a sizable amount of time. The former New Zealand batsman, though, played alongside MS Dhoni in the 2008 inaugural IPL season.
As a coach and captain, Fleming and Dhoni have a terrific working relationship. In IPL 2023, the cooperation will continue.
