MS Dhoni injury concerns ahead of the opening fixture against Gujarat Titans

MS Dhoni Injury Update: After a four-year hiatus, the richest league has returned to its traditional home-and-away style. The opening game will take place between Gujarat Titans the defending champion and Chennai Super Kings today at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Earlier reports started to emerge regarding CSK skipper MS Dhoni’s fitness ahead of the first match against Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023 edition. CSK fans and other cricket fans are excited as this could be the last season for MS Dhoni in the IPL, so the rumours of Dhoni being unavailable for the first match started going viral.

Earlier popular news agency The Indian Express reported that MSD is not expected to play in CSK’s inaugural game against Gujarat Titans. The CSK captain, according to the report, has been dealing with some soreness and a niggle in his left knee.

What Exactly Happened?

Dhoni reportedly hesitated to bat during a Monday inter-squad practice game and was observed sitting with a kneecap. When he eventually came out to bat, he appeared to be having trouble running and was frequently observed limping. In several cases, he even stopped in the middle and staggered to the crease.

Concerns over Dhoni’s hitting were added to the fact that he declined to play wicketkeeper during the practice game. This has prompted further concerns regarding his state of health and ability to participate fully in the forthcoming IPL season. 

Chennai’s Response to the Dhoni Injury Reports 

Chennai has denied the injury rumor surrounding Indian superstar MS Dhoni and stated that their captain will be available for the 2023 Indian Premier League’s first game. Dhoni has no injuries, according to CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan, who was speaking to PTI. He is also ready to play. “In my opinion, the captain is participating fully. I am unaware of any other developments, said in a statement by CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan.

CSK Determined to Make a Strong Comeback 

CSK will be aiming to prove their class and stage a good comeback after a dismal performance in the previous season, where they ended ninth in the league. This time around, the squad captained by MS Dhoni will strive to deliver a consistent performance and will be in contention for the championship.
