“Was Lucky Enough”: Faf Du Plessis On Playing Under MS Dhoni Ahead Of IPL 2022

Written by Mohan Sharma

Former India captain MS Dhoni on Thursday stepped down as the skipper of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ahead of the start of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The announcement came as a shock to many and the cricketing fraternity has been paying its tributes to the veteran wicketkeeper-batter. Newly-appointed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Faf du Plessis, who was part of CSK squad during their title-winning campaign last season, also shared his views on playing under Dhoni.

In a video uploaded by the IPL on Twitter, du Plessis said that he was fortunate enough to play under Dhoni.

“I was lucky enough to play under MS Dhoni for a very long time. Got to see very closely how his brain works and how things operate under him,” said the former South Africa skipper.

Ravinda Jadeja will replace Dhoni as captain of CSK for the upcoming season.

Under Dhoni, CSK won four IPL titles, including last season’s win in the final over Kolkata Knight Riders in the UAE.
