MS Dhoni Likely To Miss IPL 2023 Opener

Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni could miss the IPL 2023 opener against defending champions Gujarat Titans on Friday in Ahmedabad due to a niggle in his left knee, The Indian Express reported.

The report stated that Dhoni is feeling discomfort and do not want to push too much as there is a shortage of wicketkeepers on the side. However, when contacted, the franchise refused to comment.

Meanwhile, earlier on the day, Dhoni was among the nine IPL skippers who attended the captain’s meet at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma missed the event due to a reported illness.

Dhoni has been training hard ahead of the IPL at Chepauk. The 41-year-old looked in prime shape and fittest even at this age.

In case Dhoni is not available on Friday, it would be interesting to see who leads the side. Ben Stokes is definitely an option to captain the side. Ravindra Jadeja had led the side last year in seven games without much success.
