new Delhi: The history of IPL is 12 years old. Meanwhile, the pages of history have been re-opened by former Indian cricketer Subramanian Badrinath and have revealed one that everyone is surprised to know. In fact, former IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman S Bradinath has told that during the first edition of the world’s biggest league, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not the first choice of CSK team management, but another Indian player selected as captain for CSK. had to go.
Virender Sehwag was the first choice of CSK as captain – S Badrinath
In fact, during a recent media interview, S. Brdinath has told that in 2008, the team management of Chennai Super Kings was replacing Virender Sehwag (Dhoni) as Dhoni. Brdinath has told that CSK team management wanted to make India’s veteran opener Virender Sehwag the captain of Chennai.
When team owner N Srinivasan came to know that Sehwag was keen to play from Delhi. So after that he considered the name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) and bought him for about 6 crores rupees under the Indian rupee, that is, the price of US $ 1.5 million. Because a year ago in 2007, Team India had become the T20 World Cup (T20 WC 2007) champion led by Mahi. At the same time, Dhoni was established as the fastest fire finisher in that era. Hence Dhoni was included in CSK. Later, the way in which MS Dhoni has contributed for Chennai Superkings is icing on the cake.
CSK made 3 times IPL champion under Dhoni
If we consider this disclosure of Badrinath, then Chennai Super Kings will not be the most successful team of IPL. There is no reiterating that the fantasy of Mahi’s bagger CSK is a bit difficult. The CSK team, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has been a 3-time IPL champion and a 2-time Champions League winner. Whereas in IPL history, Mahi’s army is the only team that has made it to the playoffs in all the seasons of the tournament so far.
