Mahendra Singh Dhoni, widely regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time. He has led India to several significant victories, including the 2011 ODI World Cup. Nicknamed ‘Captain Cool’ for his composed demeanor on the pitch, Dhoni’s captaincy approach has been praised by former teammate Shikhar Dhawan. According to Dhawan, Dhoni prefers to maintain a calm mindset on the field. Dhoni believes that excessive aggression could harm the team’s performance. Dhawan also highlighted Dhoni’s excellent self-control, which reflects his maturity as a leader.

“Dhoni bhai created a very relaxed environment within the team. He is very chilled out. He only said things that needed to be said, and his presence was quite calm,”

Dhawan said.

Dhoni is very down to earth: Shikhar

Dhawan further said:

“Mahi bhai is a very fun-loving guy. He is a very simple and down-to-earth person. He, too is aggressive at times, but he restrains himself as he knows that it could spoil the environment. That’s his maturity and he has a lot of self-control.”

Despite no longer being an active international player, Mahendra Singh Dhoni still plays a crucial role as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL). Similarly, despite being overlooked for selection in all three formats, Shikhar Dhawan’s leadership as the captain of the Punjab Kings (PBKS) is crucial in the IPL.

Despite a loss to the defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) in the tournament opener, Dhoni steered the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to victory in their second match. In the meantime, Dhawan led his team Punjab Kings (PBKS) to triumph in their first two matches.

On Saturday, April 8, the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the much-anticipated match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and their fierce rivals, Mumbai Indians (MI). The following day, PBKS will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
