Former Indian batsman and an exceptional commentator, Aakash Chopra has recently expressed his extreme pleasure over watching MS Dhoni play for long. Chopra said that he will be much excited to witness the finesse of captain cool if he plays for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) until the end of 2022. Dhoni doesn’t remain part of the regular cricketing action now so watching him in IPL will definitely be a treat for many.
The retired opener keeps expressing his views on various matters related to cricket and is a known figure on YouTube where he makes great analysis too. Recently, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan made a revelation that MSD is likely to play for franchise till 2022. Chopra feels there can’t be a better thing because playing for CSK is the only time we can witness Dhoni’s class as he doesn’t play other tournaments on regular basis.
“If we listen to what the CSK CEO has said, he is saying that MS Dhoni will not be with them only for now but for a long time to come and will also be seen playing. And I am very happy. I am not complaining one bit because you don’t see MS Dhoni play regularly these days, he is seen only for Chennai Super Kings,” expressing his delight, Chopra says.
