Dhoni On CSK Future IPL 2023: Mahendra Singh Dhoni did what he does best and handed his team two valuable points in the ongoing IPL on Sunday.

Dhoni, who took the responsibility of leading the CSK side again after the team lost 6 out 8 matches under the captainship of Ravindra Jadeja, has again given the fans some reasons for joy.

Chennai winning the match remained the first and ultimate reason for their happiness, but what Thala said during the toss was priceless.

At the toss, MS Dhoni revealed his future plans as a Chennai Super Kings player and said, “You will definitely see me in the yellow jersey [next year], whether this yellow jersey or some other yellow jersey, that’s a different thing.”

After Ravindra Jadeja stepped down as CSK captain, Dhoni was named the new captain on Saturday.

When Dhoni announced his decision to step down as captain two days before the commencement of the Indian Premier League’s 15th edition, Jadeja was named captain.

Although, the four-time IPL title champions, failed to score points and were languishing in ninth place with only two wins in eight games when the announcement came that Jadeja stepped down from captaincy.

In the first game under the captainship of MSD, Chennai defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 13 runs.

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway’s breezy six-hitting display was matched by Mukesh Choudhury’s four-wicket haul as Chennai Super Kings defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 13 runs in an IPL encounter on Sunday.

CSK scored an intimidating 202 for two after being summoned to bat, thanks to Gaikwad’s 99 off 57 balls and Conway’s 85 not out off 55, who put SRH’s attack to the sword with a sparkling 182-run partnership, the season’s best opening stand.

While chasing a big target, SRH fell short and scored 189 for 6 in 20 overs Despite late fireworks from Nicholas Pooran (64 not out) and a 47-run effort from skipper Kane Williamson at the top.

Choudhary took the honors of bowling the best figures for CSK, he took four for 46, while Dwaine Pretorius and Mitchell Santner took one wicket each.

Chennai will play their next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4, 2022, at Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune.
