“Dhoni performs a giant function. Everyone knows how massive Dhoni is in India, and the model of cricket he performs. He is among the greatest T20 and white-ball gamers ever to play the sport, and if you happen to get him as a pacesetter, it’ll deliver success as he is aware of tips on how to get the very best out of his gamers,” Morkel instructed Sportstar.

CSK, consequently, has gained three IPL titles in historical past, together with a win throughout their heroic comeback in 2018. “Consistency is their secret. Over the previous few seasons, they’ve made the finals eight occasions out of 10,” concluded Morkel.
