Be it with the bat or ball, Dhoni is a stalwart of the World’s biggest and toughest T20 league. The wicket-keeper batter has great IPL numbers with the bat. In 234 matches, Dhoni has scored 4978 runs with the help of 24 half-centuries, a career-best score of 84 not out. He has always been sensational behind the stumps. Under his captaincy, the Yellow Brigade won IPL titles in 2010 and 2011. They returned from the ban winning it in 2018 and then winning again in 2021.

The management has tried to recreate a roster similar to their last triumph which is a mix of seasoned veterans and dependable young players. Chennai’s biggest strength will be the coach-captain duo of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Stephen Fleming who have successfully worked together for years.
