The former Indian skipper has been captaining the CSK since the league’s inaugural edition in 2008, leading them to as many as four triumphs. Speaking to Star Sports, former CSK star matthew hayden Said, “See CSK, they notoriously find a way to do things unique and special. Take their hiatus out of their IPL, it was unfortunate the two years they weren’t playing, and they came back the year after that to win the IPL , it was most unexpected. And they have a way! “MS Dhoni has a way of revitalizing, revamping, making it just a completely different look and feel to the side, even though it’s had this great tag of having complete trust in few players and having retained most of their players.
“So for MS Dhoni, I think this year in particular, it’s going to be a year celebrated like no other. It’s the finish I believe of the legacy of MS Dhoni and he will want to go out in style with his fans, who’ d want him to go out in style as well.” The upcoming edition of the IPL starts from March 31.
