IPL 2023: IPL playoff matches are very close. Gujarat Titans is the only team so far that has qualified in the playoffs.
However, if Chennai Super Kings win their next match, then that too will easily take entry in the playoffs. Earlier, CSK coach has given a big statement regarding Dhoni.
MS Dhoni: CSK coach's statement to the fans of Chennai Super Kings may disappoint a bit. Even though the team of Chennai Super Kings has not reached the playoffs yet, but the team will qualify as soon as it wins the next match and the way the team has performed this season. With him, the fans have full hope that the team will easily make it to the playoffs. Meanwhile, the coach of the team has given a big statement about Dhoni.
Dhoni will not play in the playoffs?
Chennai Super Kings team's batting coach Mike Hussey has given a big update about Dhoni's playing in the upcoming matches. Hussey has shared that Dhoni's knee is not 100% fit.
Despite this, he is playing in every match. Let us tell you that Dhoni has problem in all the matches because of his knee injury, but even after this he has been batting continuously for the team.
Although, Hussey has not given any statement regarding his not playing in the playoffs, but if Dhoni's knee injury becomes serious, he may have to stay out of the field.
Reason for batting in the lower order
In every match of IPL 2023, Dhoni has been seen batting in the lower order only. On this, Mike Hussey said that he does not want to put pressure on his knee by running and scoring runs, so while batting in the lower order, he wants to 'finish' the innings by hitting big shots.
He does not come down to bat as long as possible. Hussey further said that MS Dhoni is a legend and the kind of support that Chennai and Dhoni are getting to see is not everyday.
Mike Hussey's statement on MS Dhoni's retirement
Amid speculations of Dhoni's retirement, Mike Hussey said that he can still play cricket for the next five years. He further said that he is consistently batting well and is enjoying his game. Looking at his game, I have a feeling that he will be seen on the field for the next five years
