Pune: Legendary Australian cricketer turned commentator Richie Benaud once said, “Being captain is 90% luck and 10% skill. But don’t try without that 10 percent. If so, MS Dhoni must be among the luckiest captains to have played the game, and Ravindra Jadeja – among the unluckiest.Also Read – The Best Thing Was…: Mohammed Shami Spills The Beans On What Worked For Gujarat Titans In IPL 2022
Less than a week after Chennai lost by 11 points to Punjab, it looked like their hopes of a playoff ending were about to end, but now there is a surge of confidence, and it’s all probably due to the biggest name in Indian cricket. never – MS Dhoni.

Jadeja resigned as skipper of CSK on Friday night and convinced Dhoni to take it. It created a huge buzz for one obvious reason, Dhoni. Hashtags like ‘#ReturnOfThala’ and ‘#CSKReady’ were trending on the social space. Dhoni’s illustrious CV includes all ICC white ball trophies apart from that – he has four IPL titles to his name. With so many titles, he is surely lucky. Also Read – Indian Cricketer Deepak Chahar Ties Bond With Fiancee Jaya Bhardwaj, Wedding Photos Go Viral, See Post
After the 13-point victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad, the men in yellow look different and – surely, surely – Dhoni and his Midas Touch have a huge part to play in that. From the incoming CSK skipper at No.3 to Dhoni guiding youngster Mohit Choudhary into the final over, the 40-year-old superstar has really made his impact in the game in a very calm and nonchalant manner. Now all the teams would be afraid of the unit led by Dhoni.
He may not have been blitzkrieg at No. 3, but entering No. 3 showed intent and positive intent at it. This movement should have motivated the entire locker room. And walking to Choudhary after being taken to the cleaners early in the final against Nicholas Pooran, showed he still had the magic and the fire in him.
With three wins in nine games, making the playoffs still seems like a far-fetched dream, but even cheerleaders like Michael Vaughan and others believe the impossible could happen. Chennai have to win their remaining five games and depend on the results of other teams as it could possibly come down to Net Run Rate (NRR). But again, it’s the IPL and weird things have happened.
