IPL 2023 is all set to begin soon. Ben Stokes playing for Chennai Super Kings is a moment that many fans would be waiting for. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as MS Dhoni is all set to captain England captain after England’s Head Coach.
MS Dhoni is all set to become the skipper for the England Test captain
Ben Stokes was the costliest purchase for CSK at IPL 2023 Auctions. In fact, in the history of the tournament, too, Stokes was the costliest for the franchise. Nevertheless, it is a worthy buy as Stokes adds plenty of experience and balance to the setup. Most importantly, after the retirement of MS Dhoni, Stokes would be a brilliant choice to take forward the captaincy baton.
Interestingly, MS Dhoni has also coached Brendon McCullum, who currently is the Head Coach of England. Stokes is the England Test captain and hence, MSD will own the distinction of having captained both the current coach and captain of the in-form England Test side.
Meanwhile, CSK has started preparations for the upcoming season of IPL. It will be important for the franchise to do well this time around. They had a poor outing last season and considering the standards that they have set, it would be expected of the four-time champions to execute a strong comeback in IPL 2023.
Twitter reacts to MSD’s longevity
All skippers from IPL 2008 have moved on while MS Dhoni is still at the helm of affairs for CSK. The impact of MS Dhoni is immense and he has been doing it for ever. This shows the kind of cricketer and character that he is. On that note, Twitter noted that there were several other good coaches who played under MSD. Here are some other reactions in this regard:
