The Indian Premier League(IPL) 2024 is not far away from starting and the hype is already on with all the 10 teams ready to compete after building their respective squads. This will be the 16th edition of one of the most global T20 franchise leagues in cricket history. Everyone will be looking forward to the big tournament with the big sixes, thrilling games and all the drama coming their way. There are ten teams once again who will be competing for the prestigious title with all the teams having their own set of top players in the league.
The team that will be one of the sides to watch out for is the Chennai Super Kings(CSK), who are comfortably one of the best sides in the league. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also going to lead the side once again. They will also be going into the tournament as defending champions and will be confident enough with their squad filled with some great players in the mix. The likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ravindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane after some incredible performances in the last season will be the players to watch out for as well.
Dhoni at his best
Dhoni has already begun training for the upcoming tournament and is still looking fit and fine even at the age of 41. Dhoni has already given a lot of great times for the Chennai franchise not only with his performance on the field but also his interactions with the fans and reporters. The former India skipper was in another interview where a journalist was asking him about the reason behind CSK player's performances where players like Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson, are not really in their prime and giving great performances. This was only followed by a cool response from MS saying “ If I say it so openly then nobody would hire me so, I need to keep it a secret you know”. He follows it up with a cola reference as well stating that none of those companies share their recipes.

This is a classic MSD response where he was being professional and hilarious at the same time while giving a clear answer. This is Dhoni’s way of interacting with the people whom he surprises with these witty answers every time he gets the chance. This is also why he has many people inspired by his simple charisma and talent, which displays everywhere he is present. This response solidifies Dhoni as one of the most popular sports personalities in the world. We will still be interested to see him on the field where he will be leading the franchise once again in one of the biggest tournaments in the world.
