Watch: Delhi Capitals players describing MS Dhoni in one word – World News Network


Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], May 10 (ANI): Delhi Capitals are all set to lock horns with MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings. Ahead of the game, DC players were asked to describe MS Dhoni in one “word” and the answers which came were heartfelt.
India’s veteran bowler, Ishant Sharma considers Dhoni as his “Big Brother” while for Axar Patel, Dhoni is “Mr Cool” as all say it.
Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh calls former Indian captain “Legend”. And Sarfaraz Khan is a “big fan” of Dhoni.
DC Young players named him “legend”, “thalaiva” and even “god” in the video posted by DC on their Twitter handle.
Captain Cool has a rich legacy in IPL, he has scored 5052 runs in his 243 matches with an average of 39.47. Batting down the order, he has bagged 24 half-centuries, 348 fours and 237 sixes. His best individual score is 84*.
Coming in the lower middle order, Dhoni has scored 76 runs in 10 games with a strike rate of 200.00 and an average of 76.00.
Dhoni is associated with CSK since the opening season of the rich-cash league, besides a two-season stint with now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant from 2016-17.
He has a massive yellow army supporting him in every match, which breaks into cheers every time he walks onto the crease.
Currently, CSK is in second place in the points table with six wins and four losses, with one match failing to produce a result. They have a total of 13 points. On the other hand, DC is at the bottom with four wins and six losses. They have a total of eight points and would be aiming to reach double-digits. CSK had won its previous match against Mumbai Indians (MI) while DC had won their previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
