IPL 2023: MS Dhoni Calls Himself The Annoyed Captain, Here Is The Biggest Reason

Everyone knows Mahendra Singh Dhoni as captain cool but now the CSK skipper himself said that he could be an annoying captain when it comes to switching the fielders regularly. With his brilliant captaincy, MS Dhoni’s team reached the final of the IPL 2023 beating Gujarat Titans by 15 runs at Chepauk.

It is widely known that the 41-year-old captain is highly skilled in tactics on the cricket field and he loves to have a perfect field position in order to dominate the game. After a comprehensive victory over the Titans in Qualifier 1, Dhoni revealed that he assesses the conditions at the venue and relies on his instinct to make necessary adjustments in the field.

While talking to Harsha Bhogle during the post-match presentation, MS Dhoni said,”You see the wicket, you see the conditions and according to that, you keep adjusting the field. I can be a very annoying captain because I shift the fielder one or two feet here and there every time. The fielder needs to keep an eye on me. Imagine you are fielding and every two balls or three balls, I am like, ‘Okay two feet to your right, three feet to your left.”

He further added,”It can be annoying. I always say I believe in my gut feel, I see the wicket, the line, what is really happening and more often than not, it pays off. The only request I ask from the fielders is ‘keep an eye on me, if you drop a catch, there won’t be any reactions but just keep an eye on me.”

After beating GT by 15 runs, CSK reached the final of the IPL for the record 10th time. Also, it is the 11th final for MS Dhoni as he was there with Rising Pune Supergiants when they played the decider against Mumbai Indians in 2017.
