Indian Premier League (IPL) captain for the Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni, has already begun getting ready for the next tournament. This time around, the renowned cricketer will captain the team again after guiding the Chennai-based team to an IPL title that broke all previous records the previous year.
Recently, Dhoni was sighted hanging out with Parthiv Patel, Ashish Nehra, and Zaheer Khan, his former colleagues from India, ahead of the IPL 2024 season. Even a photo of Parthiv’s encounter with the former captain of India was posted on Instagram. The former Indian players are pictured on a couch in the article. Zaheer, Nehra, and Patel are no longer playing competitive cricket, although Dhoni is still playing in the Indian Premier League.
Last week, MS Dhoni spoke at an event hosted by Single.ID about his leadership style and what it takes to manage the duties of a team captain.
“The respect component has a significant impact on loyalty. It is hard to gain such loyalty when you talk about the dressing room unless the players or support personnel appreciate you. In reality, what matters is what you are doing, not what you are saying. Even if you might not say anything, you can still be respected by your actions, MS Dhoni stated.
As a leader, I have always believed that respect must be earned because it is not a given to have a position or title. It stems from your behavior. Sometimes people experience insecurity. in sometimes, you may be the first person in the team to doubt your own abilities, even when everyone else believes in you. In conclusion, respect is earned rather than demanded because it comes naturally. The World Cup-winning captain continued, “Once you have that loyalty, the performance will follow too.
Chennai Super Kings supporters are now eagerly awaiting MS Dhoni’s return this year after witnessing a thrilling IPL campaign last year. Despite dealing with a knee ailment for the majority of the previous season, Dhoni was still able to lead Chennai to their sixth IPL championship. In the IPL 2023 final, Chennai, led by Dhoni, defeated Gujarat Titans by a margin of five wickets.
