‘MS Dhoni Is Like a Diesel Engine’, AB De Villiers Huge Praise For CSK Captain Ahead Of IPL 2024

Former South Africa and Royal Challengers Bangalore batter AB de Villiers heaped praise on MS Dhoni’s longevity in the Indian Premier League, likening the Chennai Super Kings captain to a diesel engine. He added that the 42-year-old has been an incredible captain in the world-popular T20 league.

Over the past few years, MS Dhoni has faced ongoing speculation regarding his future in the IPL. Widespread rumors were suggesting that Dhoni would retire after the IPL 2023 season. The former India World Cup-winning captain himself mentioned after the final last year that it might be the appropriate time for him to retire.

While talking to his YouTube channel, MS Dhoni said, “There were a lot of rumors about MS Dhoni finishing up last year; that was not the case, ladies and gentlemen. He would be back again.”

”Will this be his final season? No one knows. He just seems to be this diesel engine that never ends. He keeps running. What an incredible player, what an incredible captain,” he added.

AB de Villiers regards the Chennai Super Kings’ commitment to backing their core group once again as excellent news for the franchise.

“‘I believe it’s through their presence, it’s through the leadership of MSD, a calm coach in Stephen Fleming, senior players in Ravindra Jadeja, and others who have really set this incredible culture alive.
