Chennai Super Kings captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become the first team to reach the playoffs of IPL 2021. The team, which missed out on qualifying in the playoffs last season, has made a great comeback this time. Dhoni’s team is currently at the top of the points table. Dhoni has also been a very successful captain at the international level and the team is performing well under his captaincy in the IPL. Meanwhile, Team India’s head coach Ravi Shastri has described Dhoni as the greatest captain ever in white-ball cricket. Shastri believes that Dhoni has achieved almost everything that a captain can achieve.
Ravi Shastri (in Fancode) said “MS Dhoni is the greatest white-ball captain ever, look at his record in ICC tournaments, he has won everything. No one is close to him in white-ball format. The calmness and control he brings every time”.

Team India’s head coach praised Dhoni’s calm mind and said, “When you see Dhoni captaining a team, and you see Chennai Super Kings, there will be an assurance that things are under control.” There may be sixes or fours on the other side but you still feel that it is restraint and control.
