New Delhi: MS Dhoni gave a major remark on his retirement after 15 runs victory over Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023 Qualifier 1 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, on Tuesday. The CSK skipper said there are still 8-9 months to think about that.
He said ” I don’t know (back next year?) – I have 8-9 months to decide. Why take that headache now. I’ll always be there for CSK, where it’s playing or something outside.”
MS Dhoni Addresses CSK’s Victory
“IPL is too big to say it’s just another final. Used to be 8 top teams, now it’s 10. I won’t say it’s just another final. It’s hard work of 2 months. Everybody has contributed. Yes, middle-order has not got ample opportunity. GT are a fantastic team and they’ve chased very well, so the thought was to get them in. But it was a good toss to lose. If Jaddu gets conditions that help him. he’s very difficult to hit. His bowling changed the game. Not to forget his partnership with Moeen,” said in the post-match show
“We try to create an environment and work out what is the strength of a fast bowler. We try to give them confidence and tell them ‘please try to explore your bowling’. We try to motivate them as much as possible. Support staff is there, Bravo and Eric are there. You see the wicket and according to that you keep adjusting the field. I can be a very annoying captain, I keep shifting fielders 2-3 feet. Only request I ask from the fielders is, keep an eye on me. If there’s a dropped catch there will be no reaction (from me), just keep an eye on me,” the CSK skipper added.
This is CSK’s first victory over defending champions Gujarat Titans and it has sent them to the finals of the Indian Premier League for a record number of 10 times.
