Former Indian and Chennai Super Kings player Parthiv Patel has lavished rich praise on skipper MS Dhoni. He said that keeper batter has that ability which can bring out your 100%, and that was the biggest quality in him.
MS Dhoni – The best finishers and captain in the game of cricket
MS Dhoni has arguably been one of the best captains in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The wicketkeeper batter has led CSK to four titles and he’s one of the main reasons behind them being the most consistent team in the tournament.
He has led CSK to four titles in 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021 and is one of the main reasons behind them being the most consistent team in the tournament. Being appointed captain of the franchise in 2008, Dhoni took the franchise to record nine IPL finals in the tournament history.
Dhoni captained the franchise in 219 games and made sure that CSK made it into the playoffs of all the seasons they had participated except in 2020 and 2022, where they finished seventh and ninth respectively. He won 132 games as a skipper with a 60.77% win record.
Not only with his captaincy, but Dhoni also has many times won the match for his side in crunch situations with his ability to finish the games. The wicketkeeper batter has scored 4978 runs in 235 matches at a strike rate of over 135. He also has backed a lot of players and is credited for bringing out the best of them.
“He has that ability which can bring out your 100%,” Parthiv Patel lavishes rich praise on CSK skipper MS Dhoni
Former CSK player Parthiv Patel has now lavished rich praise on MS Dhoni. Speaking on Jio Cinema, he said: “I think jo sabse bada advantage jo mujhe lagti hai uska ki mera 100% alag ho skta hai, Suresh ka 100% alag ho skta hai. Sabka 100% alag ho sakta hai. Lekin Dhoni ke paas vo ability thi ki vo aapka vo 100% nikalwa sakta tha. I think mere khayal se vo sabse best quality thi. (I think the biggest advantage that Dhoni had was that he knew everybody will have a different 100%, but he has that ability which can bring out your 100%, and that was the biggest quality.)”
MS Dhoni will be next seen in action during the IPL 2023. It will potentially be his last season as a skipper and he would be hoping to add another title to his kitty.
