On November 2, Kapil Dev, one of the world’s all-rounders, believes that if Mahendra Singh Dhoni plays only in the IPL without any match practice, it will be impossible to perform better. Dhoni’s captaincy team also failed to make it to the playoffs in the 13th season of the Chennai Super Kings Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). He played his final league match of the season against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, winning but was eliminated before the playoff race.
Great cricketer Kapil Dev said that Dhoni’s age, the more he plays in it, the more his body will remain in rhythm. Kapil told a news channel, “If Dhoni decides to play in the IPL without match practice like this year, it will be ‘impossible’ for him to perform well.” It is not right to talk about age but the more he plays at his age (39 years), the more the body will remain in rhythm.

The Chennai Super Kings team, playing for the 11th time in the IPL, failed to make it to the IPL play-off for the first time this time. Dhoni, playing competitive cricket for the first time since the World Cup semi-finals last year, could score just 200 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 116. Dhoni retired from international cricket on August 15 this year. Dhoni could not score any half-century this season.
Kapil, who recently underwent angioplasty after a heart attack, wants the former Indian captain to play more in domestic tournaments to regain his form. Kapil told ‘ABP News’,’ If you will not play cricket for 10 months in a year and suddenly you will play IPL, then you can see what will happen. One can face ups and downs in a season when playing so much cricket. The same has happened with a player like Chris Gayle. (Input from agency)
