KL Says Dhoni’s Presence “Gives a Sense of Calmness’

The Indian youth selected for the reserve and main squad is enjoying Dhoni’s presence as they pick his brain to improve their game and India’s chances of winning the T20 World Cup

KL Rahul, who appeared for the Red Bull Campus Cricket Clubhouse session, said, “Obviously, MS Dhoni back with the team feels amazing because we have played under him and we have looked towards him as a mentor even when he was our captain.”

“We loved having him in the dressing room when he was the captain. We loved the calmness. We have all looked up to him to help us out, to have him here is amazing,” he said. “This gives us a sense of calmness. I have enjoyed spending time with him in the first two to three days and it has been a lot of fun. Looking forward to chewing his brain about cricket, captaincy and all things cricket.”

Inclusive of Rahul, the fans are not sure if the IPL finals win earlier this month was Dhoni’s last game ever. Speculation has emerged that Thalla might play his last game of cricket, for his side the Chennai Super Kings, in Chepauk, in front of the fans in 2022.

KL, said that despite Dhoni’s age, he still is a big competitor when it comes to IPL matches and playing against him. 

“I think Dhoni can give any of us stiff competition, he definitely is a guy who can hit the ball farthest, he is very strong and he is good (while running) between the wickets. He looks the fittest, it is good fun to have him,” Rahul said. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Make it to their Third Finals After 6 Years

With Gill and Venkatesh Iyer putting on a good performance, it seemed like KKR could cruise into the finals. The statistics were on their side, as Delhi Capitals had never defended a total less than 150 successfully. 

Alas, the partnership broke at 96 runs. Rabada took back the control for Delhi, as they went on to take 6 wickets for 7 runs by the end. The Knights had fallen from a score of 96-1 to a miserable 130-7. The Capitals could have made their comeback and become the finalists for a second consecutive year. 

But, Rahul tripathi wasn’t done. With 6 runs required off the last 2 balls, tripathi gets a ball at a good length which he smashes past the ropes. Making KKR the third and only team to get to the finals through the eliminator and qualifier II, after Chennai Super Kings in 2012 and SunRisers Hyderabad in 2016.

Now, the finals are set for the 15th of October in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium with the three time champions CSK taking on the two time champions KKR. Will it be a repeat of the 2012 finals? Or will the Kings find a way to slay the Knights?

CSK announced the name of this star player in place of Sam Curran

Star left-arm fast bowler named as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings in place of Sam Curran for the playoff matches of IPL 2021

Sam Curran, an all rounder of Chennai Super Kings was ruled out of Indian Premium League 2021 because of a back injury. Along with that, the left-arm pace bowling all rounder will miss the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup event.

Dominic Drakes from the West Indies has been selected as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings for Sam Curran. Drakes has been in the United Arab Emirates as a net bowler which would lead to making his debut for the team in the IPL. It needs to be understood that Dominic has not yet made his debut for his national team yet. 

Sam Curran has been part of the Chennai Super Kings since last year and is considered to be one of the best players among the Chennai Super Kings squad. 

Sam Curran said that he felt extremely sad that he was going to miss the upcoming IPL 2021 Playoffs and the ICC T20 World Cup because of his injury.

He was quoted saying, “I absolutely loved my time with Chennai this season. The boys are doing extremely well. It hasn’t really sunk in but I am leaving the team. We are in a fantastic space. The boys are playing really good cricket. I am going to be supporting them from wherever I am in the next few days.”

MS Dhoni Teases A Return To The IPL In 2022

When Danny Morrison questioned whether CSK’s last game in IPL 2020 would be his final appearance in yellow, MS Dhoni said, “Definitely not.” The former Indian captain kept his promise and competeD in the gala event in 2021. However, many believe Dhoni will not play in the next season, and he has been dreadfully out of form with the bat.

That does not seem to be the case, as Dhoni has hinted at playing another IPL season. Speaking virtually to some of his supporters, the former Indian captain said that he would ‘hopefully’ play his last game in Chennai’s M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. With the current IPL 2021 in the UAE, Dhoni’s remark plainly suggests that he intends to play again next season.

“You will still have the chance to wish me goodbye. Hopefully, you will come to visit me in Chennai, where I will play my last game, and I will be able to meet all of my fans,” MS Dhoni addressed some of his supporters during a virtual engagement with India Cements. The news spread like wildfire among the wicketkeeper’s supporters, who were overjoyed.

MS Dhoni hasn’t been at his best with the bat this season

Meanwhile, Dhoni, who withdrew from international cricket last year, has been far from his best in recent seasons. The dasher, who is known for hammering sixes for pleasure, has failed to score runs. The 40-year-old has collected 84 runs in his first 13 appearances in the 2021 edition of the tournament, with an average and strike rate of less than 15 and 100, respectively.

These figures are far from outstanding. However, the talismanic player continues to excel in the areas of leadership and wicketkeeping. Notably, a big auction is planned for next year, with all clubs permitted to keep just a few players. As a result, it remains to be seen if CSK keeps Dhoni directly or whether the great cricketer will be auctioned off.

When it comes to CSK’s IPL 2021 campaign, the three-time champions have been on a run. After a difficult season, the Men in Yellow have easily earned a spot in the playoffs and will be keen to win it all again.

Kevin Pietersen Reveals Who Has The Biggest Chance Of Winning IPL 2021

On September 19, the Indian Premier League’s second leg will begin with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings, their arch-rivals. Both teams have a reputation for being the most successful in IPL history. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has stated that CSK has a chance to win another IPL title ahead of the commencement of the UAE leg.

The IPL 2020 season for Chennai Super Kings was a disappointment. They did not advance to the Playoffs for the first time in the tournament’s history. The MS Dhoni-led team, on the other hand, reversed the tables this time and dominated the opening half of the IPL 2021. The squad is presently in second place in the points standings, having won five of the seven games they have played.

As a result, Pietersen stated that CSK’s success in the Indian leg of the IPL 2021 shocked him. He also put his hopes on the squad, claiming that they now have a great chance of winning the championship.

“Everyone had written off CSK’s old boys’ army before the IPL began in April, so watching them perform so well was a pleasant surprise. However, I’m not sure how well this four-month hiatus will have worked out for them. It may take some time for them to get back into gear, especially the older guys. It might be a historic few weeks for the franchise if they are prepared.”  In his recent piece for betway insider, Kevin Pietersen writes, “They have a terrific opportunity of achieving a title that everyone believed was beyond them.”

Losing three or four games is not an option for the Mumbai Indians: Kevin Pietersen

The defending champions, the Mumbai Indians, are presently in fourth position on the points standings, with eight points. The side usually gets off to a sluggish start in tournaments before gaining traction. The Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, cannot afford to lose their first few games, according to Pietersen, because the tournament is almost halfway over.

“They have a tendency to lose their first few games and then improve as the tournament progresses. We’re getting close to the finish of the competition now. Because there is so little time to make up, Mumbai cannot afford to lose three or four games before they begin playing. They must be on it from the first ball if they want to keep their crown. Clearly, they are capable of achieving it, given the skill on their team,” he continued.

Before the UAE leg of the IPL, Aakash Chopra Offers six Suggestions to the Teams

In a few days, the second phase of the Indian Premier League will begin in the United Arab Emirates, with the first match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Former Indian cricketer and pundit Aakash Chopra has offered six intriguing recommendations to all of the teams ahead of the high-profile event.

Chopra’s initial aim was to play just fast pacers and stay away from medium pacers. RCB should avoid playing Harshal Patel in favour of Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj, according to him. Chopra’s second argument was that batting first after winning the toss is the way to go in the UAE, as chasing cannot be the motto, as teams tried it in the 2020 season and failed.

“Do not use medium pacers; instead, use fast bowlers with speeds of above 137-140 kph. Fast bowlers who bowl faster than 140 kph have a higher average, economy rate, and strike rate than slower bowlers. This indicates that the pitches are aiding the speed of the bowlers. So, instead of playing Harshal (Patel), I’d suggest Navdeep and Siraj, who have more speed. “Pick (Josh) Hazlewood over (DJ) Bravo and genuine fast bowlers over swing bowlers,” Chopra stated on his YouTube channel.

Chopra added, as his third suggestion, that teams should select spinners who are faster in the air, such as Varun Chakravarthy and Rashid Khan. Chopra’s fourth argument was that suitable openers should be used against pinch hitters.

The fourth key is to use suitable openers: Aakash Chopra

“The fourth thing is to use good openers. If you’re thinking of starting with pinch hitters or ‘doing something new,’ don’t. The first 30 games here revealed a lot of dot balls at the outset, with at least two wickets falling in the powerplay. In such a situation, appropriate openers with correct approaches are required,” Chopra remarked.

Chopra’s third suggestion was that teams should go with left armers because they were highly effective in the first 30 games, according to his study. The veteran cricketer ultimately advised teams to aim for a total of more than 180 runs when batting first, since anything more than 170-175 becomes hard to chase.

Viral tweet about future CSK captain that was deleted by Ravindra Jadeja

MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, is unlikely to play more than one season. When he retires from the Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings will be left with a big hole. 

The Chennai Super Kings can buy another wicketkeeper and a finisher, but they won’t be able to buy a leader like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During his captaincy, the Chennai-based franchise has reached the Top 4 ten times out of eleven seasons. Only in 2020 did they miss it. 

It is also expected that the Chennai Super Kings will win the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League, with the team firmly positioned in the Top 4 before the UAE leg of the competition. 

Chennai Super Kings fans have been asked on Twitter who will be the team’s captain. Ravindra Jadeja, the star all-rounder of the Chennai Super Kings, responded. 

After offering an opinion, Ravindra Jadeja promptly deleted the tweet 

In the second phase of the Indian Premier League 2021, Ravindra Jadeja recently arrived in the United Arab Emirates to play for the Chennai Super Kings. The all-rounder replied to the following tweet using his jersey number ‘8’. CSK fans asked: 

Who would be your pick to captaining the CSK team after MS Dhoni?

Jadeja tweeted the number 8, which is his jersey number, in response to that question. After deleting the tweet, fans took a screenshot. This screenshot of Ravindra Jadeja’s now-deleted tweet can be seen right here, which was shared by the CSK Fans Army themselves on their Twitter account.

According to reports, Deepak Chahar is dating the sister of Bigg Boss’ star Sidharth Bharadwaj

Chennai Super Kings’ all-rounder Deepak Chahar, who is also a bowling all-rounder, seems to have found his special someone. Former Bigg Boss contestant Sidharth Bhardwaj’s sister, Jaya, is reportedly dating handsome cricketer Deepak Chahar. They plan to walk down the aisle soon.

The couple is doing exceptionally well, according to sources close to them, and is clearly very committed to each other. After the IPL season, the couple plans to tie the knot soon.

The IPL will be held in Dubai for Jaya and Deepak. Jaya was introduced to the group by Deepak. As his objective is to follow in the footsteps of his associates Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, he will secure the bunch soon with the love of his life, Jaya Bharadwaj. In Delhi, Jaya works for an organization.

Deepak Chahar is the younger brother of Bollywood model and entertainer Malti Chahar, along with his elder brother Rahul Chahar. Chahar was named T20I Performance of the Year by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for taking six wickets for seven runs against Bangladesh in January 2020.

Jaya Bhardwaj, sidharth Bhardwaj’s older sister, has appeared on television shows such as Bigg Boss 5 and Splitsvilla 2.

If these rumors are true (Deepak Chahar and Jaya), it will be a legacy forward for Bollywood with Indian cricketers like Virat and Anushka.

The first match of IPL-2021’s second leg will take place on 17th September between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. In Dubai, Rahul Chahar and Deepak Chahar will play.
