After a long gap of 436 days, which saw him playing various roles from Honorary Lieutenant Colonel to actor to producer and even retire from International Cricket, MS Dhoni is all set to captain Chennai Super Kings in 13th edition of Indian Premier League.
“It looks like Suresh Raina won’t be part of the IPL and that means an opportunity for MS Dhoni bat higher up the order, even at No.4 for CSK. If he does that, it gives him time to build his innings and in the last three-four overs, I have never seen anyone more dangerous and destructive than Dhoni himself. Batting at 4 gives him a chance to do that and win games for the franchise,” Ricky Ponting told Cricket Australia in a Twitter video.
According to Ricky Ponting, MS Dhoni is the most dangerous player who can change the game in a few overs for the team.
“Chennai Super Kings’ danger man would be MS Dhoni, who has been that for 10-12 years. Just recently, he announced his retirement from international cricket which only means he would be more hungry for success in the IPL. They were disappointed to not have won the IPL last year but if you look at their overall franchise, they have one of the most successful franchises and he’s lead them to most of those wins.”
So finally the wait is over for Indian Premier League fans, the 13th edition of the Indian premier League will kick start from today. The stage is set and teams are ready. Mumbai Indians will play against Chennai Super kings in the opening match of IPL 2020 today. You can watch this match live on star Sports and Hotstar from 7:30 PM onwards.
