The eleventh edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) has served a new version of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper, MS Dhoni. Prior to this season, the former Indian captain was highly criticised for his slow batting and losing his match-finishing skills. Moreover, several cricket pundits believed that it’s time for him to take a call on his future in the Indian cricket team. But all this while, the man remained silent and waited for his turn.
With the return of CSK after a period of two years, Dhoni’s form seems to have bounced back like never before. From hitting most sixes in this season to finishing the game like a boss, Dhoni is back to business with all his guns ablaze. At the age of 36, he has been giving career goals to many younger cricketers playing in this cash-rich tournament. Also, in the history of IPL, Dhoni’s strike rate in the ongoing season is his highest ever.
Let’s have a look at Dhoni’s strike rate in IPL till date:
Well, now the haters may say what they want to but we have enough proofs which convey that age is just a number for Dhoni while doing what he is best at.
In this season, MS Dhoni has played 9 games and have scored 329 runs and smashed 3 fifties. He is currently the 2nd batsman to hit most sixes in this tournament (24) and has hit the second longest six of 108 meters. Under his captaincy, CSK is placed at the second position on the points table with 6 wins and 12 points.
