Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not been playing competitive cricket since World Cup 2019. However, he will return to the field from IPL 2020. Also, the weight of the captaincy of Chennai Super Kings will be on his shoulders. He has arrived in Chennai for practice a month before the IPL. During this time, he has also given an interview, in which he has said many interesting things.
“Chennai Super Kings helped make me a better person” – MS Dhoni
Mahendra Singh Dhoni said in a statement given by reaching Chennai,
“On Return of the Lion show on Star Sports Network, Dhoni said, “This journey started in 2008. CSK has helped me improve in everything whether it was being a human being or being a cricketer, handling situations that are tough both in and out of the field and how to be humble once you are doing well.”
‘Thala’ basically means brother’
CSK captain added, “Thala’ basically means brother, so for me, it’s more the abstract of the fans, the love and affection towards me is the reflection of that. Whenever I am in Chennai or down South they never call me by my name they address me as ‘Thala’ and the moment someone calls me Thala they are showing their love and respect but at the same time he is a CSK fan.”
Former batting coach of the Indian team Sanjay Bangar said in a statement about Mahendra Singh Dhoni that
“It is difficult to get the rhythm right from the beginning, but it can also be a big advantage. When you are playing international cricket, there is a lot of pressure on you, because you have got different responsibilities from your team management. However, when you take a break of 6-7 months, it has a good chance of being refreshed. You return to the team more strongly.”
The upcoming IPL season will kick off from March 29. Fans are excited to see MS Dhoni in action after a long time. The upcoming tournament will be crucial to his chances of returning to the Indian team.
