MS Dhoni is all set to lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming edition of the IPL.
While the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is around the corner, every team has been preparing for it. And, Chennai Super Kings is one of them where the all-rounder K Gowtham on Monday revealed a secret of MS Dhoni.
He said that bowlers love to play under Mahendra Singh Dhoni because he knows them quite well and also knows how to get the best out of them.
“Bowlers love playing under Mahi bhai because he understands a bowler’s strengths and knows how to get the best out of him,” Gowtham was quoted as saying by the CSK website. “I don’t feel any pressure of expectations playing for a champion side like CSK.”

However, he also commented on the things that are different in CSK from other teams in the cash-rich league. He said that it was the clarity in their thought process and an organised approach that makes the three-time IPL winning franchise different.
“The CSK management understands cricket owing to its long association with the game which again reflects in its approach to players the comforting words and confidence given when things aren’t going right,” he further added. “It makes a big difference as it helps a player to express himself. They talk to the player if anything specific is needed or if he’s working on something. When these things are taken care of, it’s much easier for a player to go out and give his best.”
MS Dhoni led CSK team are currently in Mumbai and already started their training as well where they will feature in their first five matches of IPL 2021 which is all set to begin with a game against Delhi Capitals on April 10. However, they trained in Chennai from March 8 before moved to Mumbai. While they had a poor show in the last season, they will try to bounce back in their zone this season.
