The former Indian captain earned the ‘Captain Cool’ tag while he was leading the national team. He has also been at the helm at the Chennai Super Kings, since the inaugural season in 2008. CSK were among the luckier franchises to have found a player and skipper like MS Dhoni who has taken them to multiple title victories over the years. The fact has been acknowledged over the years and Imran Tahir a member of the current squad is also grateful to have Dhoni leading them.
Dhoni is a complete prolific cricketer, who can keep wickets, bat at any position for the team and is one of the best in terms of handling pressure. Needless to say, he’s one of the best captains the IPL has ever seen in its 12-year history. Ace leg-spinner Imran Tahir has attested that he feels the same about Dhoni and said that he loves playing under such a leader.
