Hayden on Whether MS Dhoni Should Return as CSK Captain in IPL 2023
MS Dhoni is the second most successful captain in the Indian Premier League history with four titles behind his name
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, on Friday, announced that he will continue playing for the four-time IPL champions next season
which is a big relief to his plethora of fans. There were so many speculations around Dhoni’s IPL future
but he ended them at the toss of the Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings clash.
However, former CSK and Australia opener Matthew Hayden feels that it will be a tough call for the franchise to take
He emphasized on that while comparing RR captain Sanju Samson’s numbers with Dhoni’s and said
how the young skipper is facing criticism despite contributing more than the veteran CSK wicketkeeper.
It is a really tough one. It depends on what the franchise expects. If you want a captain who has scored 200 runs this season at a strike rate of 128,
then no problem. He has still got power in the hands, he still has those reflexes behind the stumps, he has still got that great running between the wickets
He is also the most experienced captain in the entire IPL and has got those titles behind his name and that team behind him as well
But as they sit to rebuild and re-structure, how much of that is going to be MSD’s contribution,” Hayden said on Star Sports before the start of the CSK-RR game.
