The shortest version of Cricket, Twenty20, is considered to be the most appropriate for young people, but Dhoni disagrees. If we look at the Chennai Superkings squad, this will be acknowledged. More than half of the workers are either 35 or older.
Dhoni has never changed a lot of his core team. This is one of his main assets, too. While he added a few more players over time, his foundation was never old. The players who have the potential to win the match have been added to their camp by Chennai.
The three-time Chennai Super Kings current squad is full of seasoned stars. From team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the age of the top players is over 35. Among them, Imran Tahir, who in the last season was appointed Purple Cap with 26 wickets, is on top.
Tahir is the oldest player on the roster. He’s over 41 years old, but that doesn’t matter about his bowling. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who scored the most runs for the team last season, is 40 years old, but whether Dhoni holds or beats is excellent in every respect.
Last season, Dhoni posted the top 416 runs for Chennai. At the same time, Shane Watson is 40 years old, too, but his bat moves are still intact. Shane Watson was the number two highest scorer for Chennai in season 12. He added a total of 300 98 runs.
Fof du Plessis, 36, is also one of the top three batsmen in Chennai. Apart from this, there is also another round robin Raju in the Dhoni club that is part of this competition. Bravo, who will celebrate his 37th birthday on October 7th, has been the hero of Chennai’s triumph several times.
It’s also named Dhoni’s most trusted player. Apart from that, Harbhajan Singh is also included in this list. This time, though, he’s distanced himself from IPL. Murali Vijay Kedar Jadhav and Ambati Rayudu can also be counted among the team’s senior players.
In terms of era, they have passed the 35 mark. In the first match of season 13, Chennai will have to take the field against defending champion Mumbai Indians.
This time, Chennai won’t have two big stars, Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, but Captain Cool Mahi may have split it, too.
