Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Thala) has made it clear that he will play IPL next year as well. He made this announcement during the match played against Lucknow Supergiants. Thanks to the brilliant strategy of Mahi and the sharp bowling of the bowlers, Lucknow was able to score only 125 runs in 19.2 overs losing 7 wickets and was heading towards a certain defeat. From here on, rain intervened and the match could not be played further. In the Indian Premier League 2023, under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings is performing with a bang. CSK has so far won 5 out of 10 matches in this league, while the match against Lucknow was abandoned due to rain. In the match against Lucknow, captain Dhoni had decided to bowl first after winning the toss. During this, commentator Danny Morrison asked him a question that everyone talks about. Actually after the toss, Morrison asked Dhoni, are you enjoying your last IPL season. To this Dhoni laughed and said, “You have decided that this is my last IPL season, not me.
On hearing Dhoni’s answer, Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium echoed with the noise of the audience. Everyone was relieved to know that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be seen playing IPL next season as well. When Dhoni came on the ground for the toss, there was so much noise from the spectators present in the stadium that he could not even hear the question properly. This was not the condition of Lucknow only. Fans throng to see Dhoni on whatever ground he plays. Dhoni had announced his retirement from international cricket in the year 2020. He last appeared on the field for Team India in the ODI World Cup, 2019. Despite this, there has been no reduction in the craze towards Dhoni. On the contrary, people’s love for Thala is increasing day by day. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only batsman in the world to hit 59 sixes and 49 fours in the last over of IPL. The noise of Mahi’s 2 sixes in the last 2 balls of the innings against Punjab Kings is not taking the name of stopping till now.
Mahi did the feat of hitting 2 sixes in the last over for the 15th time in the history of IPL. These sixes have once again proved that even today there is no other finisher bigger than Dhoni in the world of cricket. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has scored the highest 709 runs in the last over of IPL by playing just 290 balls. During this, 49 fours and 59 sixes have come from Mahi’s bat. After Mahendra Singh Dhoni comes the name of Kieron Pollard, who has hit 33 sixes in the last over in the history of IPL.
The difference of sixes between the two players is enough to tell themselves why Mahi’s height is the biggest. A finisher like Dhoni has never been seen in cricket history. Age is just a number for Mahendra Singh Dhoni and he can comfortably play IPL for the next 2 years. It will be decided at the end of the season, but for the time being it is important that Dhoni comes to bat above Jadeja in the interest of the team. Raise a storm with your bat.
Although the team will reach 15 points even after winning 2 out of 4 matches and even then there is an entry in the playoffs, but for this it has to be seen how the rest of the top teams perform. On the other hand, after winning 2 matches, the team will have to register a big win, so that its net run rate is good and can maintain a place in the top 4 even in the event of equal points. If it comes to net run rate, then Chennai will expect big shots from Dhoni’s bat. Mahi has been in great touch this season and has hit sixes in the last over. In such a situation, it is expected that he will come to play above Ravindra Jadeja. Will create havoc with the bat.
