CSK has won the IPL title 3 times under the captaincy of MS Dhoni.
In the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), there is a gathering of veteran cricketers from all over the world including India. This trend has been going on for the last 13 years and now the 14th season is ready to thrill the audience. Over the years, many great players of Indian cricket have played from different teams and many are still playing. Now if a team of these Indian players is formed, what will it be like? Obviously you will include veterans like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Jaspreet Bumrah. But when Dinesh Karthik formed his team, then Dhoni was not given a place in it. Now it is also important to know the reason for this.
Former Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik is a part of this tournament from the beginning of IPL. He is one of the few cricketers who have played all the seasons of the league so far. In this case, he has a lot of experience of IPL. He has been a part of almost all the teams in the last 13 years. In such a situation, he has experience of playing with many players.
Many veterans in Karthik’s team
In such a situation, when Karthik was asked to form an IPL team that included only those players with whom he had played, Karthik made a great playing XI, but it included veterans like MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar. Not found While talking at a program of Cricbuzz, Karthik made this IPL playing XI. In this team, players from those 7 teams got a place with whom Karthik had played at some time or the other.
Karthik made Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir in the opener, while Virat Kohli at number three and Rohit Sharma at fourth. Karthik placed himself on the fifth, while Andre Russell was placed on the sixth. Among the bowlers, Karthik included Sunil Narine, Glenn McGrath, Jaspreet Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Mitchell Starc.
Dhoni was not included
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of the most successful captains in IPL history, could not find a place in this team, which can be surprising. Actually, the reason for this is that Karthik has not played any season for Chennai Super Kings only in the history of 13 years of IPL. Karthik has never been a part of the 3-time champion team. In such a situation, he could not include Dhoni.
