MS Dhoni Will Lead Chennai Super Kings in 2021, Confirms CEO

One of the most successful teams in the history of the Indian Premier League – Chennai Super Kings didn’t have a great season in this year’s cash-rich league and they also became the first team to be out of the race for a play-off place. They have managed to win only four matches out of the 12 games they have played so far in the league. With this, their record of playing play-offs in every year has been broken as well.

However, MS Dhoni will be the captain of Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021, confirmed CSK CEO, Kasi Viswanathan. MS Dhoni faced a lot of criticisms and came under the scanner for many reasons this season, including constantly backing struggling seniors over the youngsters.

“Yes, definitely. I am very confident that Dhoni will lead CSK in 2021. He has won three titles for us in the IPL. This is the first year we have not qualified for the playoffs. No other team has done that. One bad year does not mean we will have to change everything,” Viswanathan said to Times of India.

“We didn’t play to our potential this season. We lost games that we should have won. That pushed us back. The withdrawals of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh coupled with Covid cases in the camp meant that the balance of the side was upset,” he further added.

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni also expressed that he was ‘hurt’ after the loss to Mumbai Indians and also this was the first time they wouldn’t qualify for the playoffs. However, they need to work hard on their loopholes for the next season. He also shared that they need to have a clear picture for the next year. Still, two games left for them where they will play against Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.
