South African captain Faf du Plessis revealed that Dhoni’s role of recruiting International captains helped CSK a lot. He ensures that CSK finish in the top four every season they played just because of this technique.
“A great thing that CSK has done over the years, and that’s a credit to MS and (Stephen) Fleming the coach, is they have targeted captains – (Brendon) McCullum, myself, (Dwayne) Bravo, obviously MS, (Suresh) Raina’s captained a bit – because they want thinking cricketers, ” said Faf du Plessis.
“So, there’s a lot of leaders within the group, that experience of thinking cricketers is what they want and obviously it has proven to be very successful,” he added.
While praising MS, Faf du Plessis said CSK was a part of 10 out of 12 seasons of IPL. They have never finished below the semi’s or playoffs.
“Chennai Super Kings is a great franchise to be a part of. MS has got such strong leadership. He leaves a massive hole when he’s not on the field.”
Faf du Plessis then revealed about his love for feilding and added that the team had a few good fielders. ” I love going to positions on the field where the ball goes all the time. We are lucky at CSK that we got a few very good fielders. Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) is incredible, he has got the strongest arm in world cricket. Jaddu wants them to try and run. He jogs to the ball because he knows if you run, you are out.”
As IPL is postponed indefinitely he said, “The IPL, both for players and fans around the world, has become an integral part of the season. I was really looking forward to it this year.”
