What Sehwag said about Dhoni is heart winning (Photo-PTI)
New Delhi: It is said that there is light only after darkness. The story of MS Dhoni is also similar. And, this story is not only related to IPL 2023. Rather this series is going on for the last 8 years. The history of IPL is the witness that during this period whenever Dhoni has faltered, he is sure to be stable. Perhaps this is the reason why now even Virender Sehwag is saying that only Mahendra Singh Dhoni can do this.
One line became very famous after MSD stepped into world cricket. Dhoni is the one who makes the impossible happen. There are many examples of this in international cricket. And, there is a line in IPL. In the last 8 years, many such pictures were seen when something untoward happened to Dhoni and he turned it into reality.

CSK banned in IPL 2016-17, champions in IPL 2018
Those 8 years of Dhoni on the pitch of IPL starts from 2016. Dhoni was seen playing in IPL 2016 and IPL 2017 but the color of his jersey had changed. This is because Chennai Super Kings were banned. But, what happened in IPL 2018 was seen by the whole world including India.
In IPL 2018, the ban imposed on Chennai Super Kings was lifted and after waiting for 2 years, it landed on the field to play the match. With this, MS Dhoni also returned to the yellow jersey again and gave his team a dazzling victory in the same way, as bright as it is in yellow.
7th place in IPL 2020, King of IPL 2021
Just like this, CSK’s performance in IPL 2020 was contrary to expectation. He ended the tournament by staying at number 7. Dhoni said that he will return in the next season. And did what he said. CSK became the champion of IPL 2021 under Dhoni’s captaincy.
9th place in IPL 2022, first finalist of IPL 2023
Chennai Super Kings failed to maintain the success of IPL 2021 once again in IPL 2022. Dhoni then repeated the same thing. Will return with full force next season. That next season of Dhoni continues. Dhoni is seen turning words into actions here too. The title is just a step away as Chennai Super Kings has become the first finalist of IPL 2023.
Only Dhoni can do this – Sehwag
It was not easy for Dhoni to write the script of his success after every failure. Not at all in IPL 2023, where many of their main players were injured. In bowling, he continued the war with such bowlers, who did not even have any experience. But as Virender Sehwag says – only Dhoni can do this.
To install Chennai superkings. What a wonderful team. Leadership is about getting the best out of your resources and with the bowling line up Chennai had, only MS Dhoni could have taken them into the finals. That is why he is who he is and receives the love that he does. #CSKvGT

According to Sehwag’s tweet, Chennai Super Kings is a great team and that is because its captain is strong. What Dhoni did shows his leadership skills. He has shown the best out of limited resources. Only MS Dhoni can do this. Due to this, he gets so much love and affection from the people.
