New Delhi. The first match of IPL (IPL 2023) is to be played between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings (GT vs CSK) on Friday. Before this match, a bad news has come for the Chennai camp. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) got injured during the practice session. It is being told that Mahi’s knee is hurt. Due to which he did not even become a part of the practice session on Thursday. In such a situation, it is not yet clear whether the captain of CSK will be available during the first match or not.
The performance of Chennai Super Kings was very poor during the last season of IPL. This team had to bear the brunt of the change in captaincy. This is the reason that this time the franchisee would not want to make any mistake. In such a situation, due to Mahi’s injury at the beginning of the new season, the franchise has suffered a lot.
Captain’s charioteer became in trouble, took command of IPL team in only 1 match, 2 won, 2 Indians also in the list
Whenever there was a chance, the bat showed a storm, did not get a chance in Team India, now there will be havoc in IPL!
Kashi Viswanathan, CEO of Chennai Super Kings, however, took it lightly. He said during a conversation with news agency PTI, “As far as I am concerned, the captain will play 100 percent.” I am not aware of any other developments.
two bad news at once
Two bad news has come together for Chennai Super Kings. Before Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s injury, the team’s young fast bowler Mukesh Chaudhary has also been injured. Mukesh made his debut in IPL last season itself. In his very first season, he took 16 wickets. Mukesh has now become a victim of stretch fracture. Akash Chaudhary has been added to the team in his place.
Who will do wicketkeeping in place of Dhoni?
If Dhoni does not play, then CSK can hand over the responsibility of wicketkeeping to either Devon Conway or Ambati Rayudu, as they do not have any specialist wicketkeeper. Dhoni practices a lot before the season, but to save his energy, he avoids much practice just before the start of the tournament. At this age, there is a problem of early injury to the player, in such a situation, Dhoni would not want to take much risk in view of the long season.
