1-year break beneficial for Dhoni: Stephen Fleming
It is worth noting that Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of Team India played a semi-final match against New Zealand during the World Cup 2019. After that Mahi is now returning to the cricket field after about 14 months. Meanwhile, Dhoni said goodbye to international cricket on 15 August 2020. In such a situation, CSK coach Stephen Fleming has said that the break of 1 year has been very beneficial for Dhoni.
Thanks to this break, Dhoni is looking more fit, mentally strong and fresh than before, which will be beneficial for his batting and captaincy in the tournament. Of course Mahi has retired from international cricket, but nothing has changed in him. He is batting and wicketkeeping in the nets as before. It is known that the first encounter of Chennai Super Kings under IPL 2020 is against Mumbai Indians (MI) on 19 September.
Stephen Fleming spoke on the players aged in the team
During a media interview, Stephen Fleming gave his opinion on the aged players in the CSK team, including Mahendra Singh Dhoni. According to Stephen Fleming, Chennai Super Kings have 35 years more players than other teams, but it is a good thing for us, because these senior players have much more cricket experience.
In the last season, these same players have responded critically to their game. These players can mold themselves under any circumstances during the match and can also face pressure. I know very well that players like Dhoni, Shane Watson, Kedhar Jadhav and Imran Tahir have the power to turn the dice of the match on their own at any time.
