MS Dhoni, who is currently in his 16th season in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has appeared to be far from done. The wicket-keeper batsman has not only expertly guided Chennai Super King (CSK), but also delivered cameos with the bat that made supporters nostalgic.
Despite the captivating nature of Dhoni’s cameos, many fans and commentators are unsure of what it would take for the ‘Thala’ to get to the top of CSK’s batting order this year. Dwayne Bravo, a longtime teammate of Dhoni’s with the Super Kings clarified the situation by outlining Dhoni’s reasons for declining to advance himself.

“He must bat in that position. Everyone bats above him, therefore he decides to bat lower in the order to offer players like Jadeja, Rayudu, and Dube as many opportunities as he can. He also accepts responsibility for doing so. In a news conference, Bravo had stated, “He is content to merely play the finishing role.
With five victories from seven games, Chennai is leading the IPL 2023 standings. Rajasthan, on the other hand, has four victories in seven games and is ranked third in the points standings. Bravo is optimistic in the team’s ability to maintain its momentum as well as the atmosphere in the CSK dressing room.
“The CSK morale is quite high, and the performance is unrelated. Whether or whether we do well, we are a team that is often fairly level-headed.
But when we are succeeding, everything is better. We have had a strong start to the season thus far, and now we simply need to maintain that trend and keep winning cricket matches. The game versus RR tomorrow would be very challenging, he said.
