The Indian Premier League season 16 has come to an end and Chennai Super Kings have lifted their 6th trophy under the leadership of MS Dhoni. Chennai Super Kings has equalized Mumbai Indians in terms of the total number of IPL trophies. This is one of the greatest achievements for MS Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings. The last ball win over Gujarat Titans will go down in the history books for CSK.
Indian Premier League (IPL) attracts some of the world’s best cricketers, and matches are known for their high intensity, entertainment, and fan following. The IPL has had a significant impact on Indian and international cricket. It has provided a platform for young domestic players to showcase their talent alongside established international stars. The league has also contributed to the growth of T20 cricket globally and has paved the way for the development of other franchise-based leagues around the world.
However, there is one thing that makes the IPL bigger than other T20 cricket leagues the presence of MS Dhoni. Since his debut in international cricket, Dhoni made a meteoric rise in international cricket with his calm and composed leadership. After his retirement, Indian Premier League became the only platform to watch him perform and stun everyone with his leadership skills. With every game and every season, the love of fans for MS Dhoni has increased exceptionally.
The Chennai Super Kings leader has given some hints about his retirement from the tournament but fans want him to play next year as well. MS Dhoni will reach the age of 42 very soon and eventually, it becomes difficult to stay as an active player but still, fans would like to see him in the next season of IPL and the biggest question is why?
The Leadership of MS Dhoni
Without a doubt, MS Dhoni is the most intelligent captain international cricket has ever witnessed. He can change the result of the game from behind the stumps and can completely play with the mentality of the opposition. Dhoni’s decision-making power is powerful and inspiring for cricket fans not only in India but across the world. This is one of the biggest reasons everyone wants him to play one more season of IPL and lead the Chennai Super Kings towards success.
Chennai Super Kings to overtake Mumbai Indians
Both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are the strongest teams in the Indian Premier League. As of now, they both have 5 trophies in their pocket and IPL fans would like to see Chennai Super Kings taking over Mumbai Indians with one more trophy next year. Everyone wants MS Dhoni to play one more season of IPL and win another trophy so that CSK has an edge over Mumbai Indians (MI) and the living legend can call it a day finally. Chennai Super Kings tried changing the captaincy last year by making Ravindra Jadeja as the leading man but the franchise failed miserably. IPL fans trust MS Dhoni and his skills to gain the edge over Mumbai Indians.
One Last Positive Inning
It was unfortunate to see MS Dhoni lose his wicket for a duck in the final game against Gujarat Titans (GT). Everyone had high expectations from MS Dhoni but he miserably failed to score a single run. Considering the status MS Dhoni has in India, all of us would like to see him play a match-winning inning in his last game. MS Dhoni giving bowlers a tough time on the ground is the best scenario in IPL. An Indian cricket legend can’t leave the pitch with a duck in his last innings.
