IPL 2023: MS Dhoni is a popular brand in the world of cricket because of his achievements in every format of the game. The former Indian captain is known for his cool attitude even in the tensest situations and that is why he is also called the ‘Captain Cool’ by many cricket experts and fans as well.
Credit for CSK’s success in the IPL is solely given to MS Dhoni as his captaincy has a huge impact on team players. He also reads the game better than anyone else.
For most seasons, their playoff qualification record has been impressive, but unfortunately, they did not perform well in the last season, resulting in their failure to make it to the playoffs. They finished in the 9th position on the points table due to winning only four matches and losing the remaining ten fixtures.
The wicketkeeper-batsman plays for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and has taken the franchise to four IPL titles and two Champions Trophy titles as well. Also known by the name ‘Thala’ in Chennai, he has a huge fan following in the city and people often come to stadiums just to get a glimpse of him practicing in the nets.
