Chennai Super Kings (CSK) CEO, Kasi Viswanathan, confirmed that the team’s legendary captain, MS Dhoni, is going to get medical advice for his injured left knee. Viswanathan underlined that Dhoni will have the final say when deciding to have surgery.
Dhoni battled with the injury during the IPL 2023 season, but despite this, he showed excellent wicket-keeping abilities. However, he had difficulty running between the wickets, which led him to fall down the batting order.
“Yes, it is true that Dhoni will seek medical advice for his left knee injury, and he will make a decision accordingly. If surgery is recommended, the final call will rest entirely with him,” quoted Kasi Viswanathan in an interview.
MS Dhoni Guided CSK to 5th IPL Title
Chennai Super Kings claimed the Indian Premier League 2023, setting a remarkable record in the process. MS Dhoni-led side upset the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans in the nail-biting final to lift their fifth Cup in IPL. Dhoni’s leadership has been instrumental.
Viswanathan remarked on the franchise’s celebrating actions after their historic victory and pointed out that there were no lavish celebrations because the team has never been one for overdoing the celebrations.
“He is very happy, but there were no celebrations. The players dispersed to their respective destinations from Ahmedabad. Additionally, if you have observed CSK’s history, we have never been big on celebrations,” Viswanathan said.
“As someone who has been associated with CSK since the inaugural season, we have always adhered to our established processes. The key to our success lies in maintaining simplicity and clearly communicating the expectations to each player. Our skipper has consistently embraced this uncomplicated approach,” Viswanathan concluded.
Dhoni is 41 years old and has been playing cricket for over 20 years. He is one of the most successful cricketers in the world, having won the World Cup with India in 2007, 2011, and 2013 (Champions Trophy). Overall CSK fans would be happy since Dhoni has given hope to his fans that he would come back next year to play his last season.
