New Delhi: MS Dhoni knows very well how to convert failure into success. Those who know Dhoni don’t even need any proof on this. By getting CSK the IPL 2023 playoff ticket, Dhoni has displayed his same skill. Whatever he has done for CSK this season, in the true sense, every captain should do it for his team.
If we talk to Dhoni about success, he will say that there is no recipe for it. They insist on the process for this. According to him, the right way to the team’s success is to make proper use of their ability by trying and testing the players properly. Dhoni has tried it very well for CSK in IPL 2023.

Dhoni suffered the pain, did not leave the team
The best quality of a captain is to take the right decisions at the right time. After recovering from last season’s failure, Dhoni did not care about his injury to perform this season. The team needed him and he stood by him even in pain. Dhoni is playing every match for CSK even though his knee is injured.
Dhoni’s strike rate is the best
Dhoni is not only playing for the team with pain but is also giving performance on the field. His strike rate was the strongest against any batsman in his team. He has scored 103 runs in 10 innings of IPL 2023 at a strike rate of over 190.
Dhoni’s knee is injured, so this season he has kept his batting position for the time when the last 2-3 overs are left. Meaning when only his sixes work, there is no need to run between the wickets. And, this is also happening. Many matches have been such for CSK this season, in which Dhoni’s sixes have made a difference. Due to him the team has won.
Mahi is turning words into deeds.
MS Dhoni says that every player has his own perspective about cricket. But I am more interested in those players who put the team before their own performance. Those who care about the team and not about their personal milestones. Perform in important matches. Dhoni tries to give his player that environment in which he can adjust. This season, his words have been reflected very well in his actions on the field.
The result of what Dhoni said is that Rituraj Gaikwad did not care about his century against Delhi Capitals. Tushar Deshpande emerged as a death overs and powerplay specialist. Mathisha Pathirana emerged as the trump card of the team. And, now these same players are winning matches for Dhoni, taking him to the playoffs. After this success, Dhoni can only be called an all-rounder in one word, which every captain must have.
