IPL 2021: Moeen Ali shares his thoughts says, “Playing under MS Dhoni is on every player’s wish list”
Chennai Super King’s newest addition, Moeen Ali says that there is a calm tone in the team and that every player wants to play the guidance of MS Dhoni.
In February 2021, during the players auction, Moeen Ali was bought by Chennai Super King for INR 7 crore. “I think what differentiates CSK from other teams is actually how they structure everything…from the squad they have two ways to do things. They look a very calm franchise and doesn’t panic,” Moeen was quoted saying this on the official website of team CSK.
“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS Dhoni and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe only a great captain has the capability to do that. I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting,” said Moeen.
He continued further saying how it is important for a captain to be always calm, Moeen said, “It’s very important to have strong leadership and coaches who stay calm, who take the pressure off the players as much as they can and are consistent. We are very lucky we have that.”
IPL is scheduled to start it’s opening match on April 9 with Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. CSK will play it’s first match on April 10 against the Pant-led team Delhi Capital at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
