Adam Gilchrist on CSK Legend’s Press Stance: MS Dhoni Never Spoke to the Press While Playing Cricket…

Adam Gilchrist on CSK Legend’s Press Stance: Since MS Dhoni gave up his captaincy for Chennai Super Kings and handed it over to Ruturaj Gaikwad, he has not been interacting with the media or the public.

According to former Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist, MS Dhoni rarely ever talks to the media. It is like a rule for him. Gilchrist said it is almost as if Dhoni is seen as something very special or important, like “the holy grail.”

Since MS Dhoni passed on the captaincy of Chennai Super Kings to Ruturaj Gaikwad, he hasn’t been talking to the media or the public. This change was announced just before the IPL 2024 opener between CSK and Royal Challengers Bengaluru. Now, Ruturaj handles the mandatory pre and post-match interactions. Additionally, the CSK support staff, led by head coach Stephen Fleming, takes care of the post-match press conferences.

In the four matches that CSK has played, Dhoni hasn’t had any outstanding performances that would make him eligible for the Player of the Match interview with the broadcasters. As a result, he hasn’t been participating in those interviews either.

Gilchrist mentioned that Dhoni has always been like that. Even when he was playing cricket for India, he was a very private person.

“He’s kind of like a treasure because he never gives interviews. He never did, not even when he was playing. It’s always a clear no,” Gilchrist said on the Club Prairie Fire Podcast.

In a match against the Delhi Capitals, Dhoni almost won the Player of the Match award by scoring 37 runs off just 16 balls in a chase of 192 runs. However, despite his efforts, the team couldn’t secure the victory. There was still too much work left to do.

“In another match, no one knew what Dhoni had left in him as he did not bat in the first couple of games. But even in a losing situation, he showed his skills and made an impact,” Gilchrist mentioned.

During their batting innings, Chennai Super Kings didn’t perform well and then faced strong opposition from Abhishek Sharma, whose quick 37 runs off 12 balls helped Sunrisers Hyderabad secure a comfortable six-wicket victory against the defending champions.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers were very disciplined in their performance, managing to restrict Chennai Super Kings to a total of 165 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs. Only 37 runs were scored in the last five overs of CSK’s innings.

If Chennai Super Kings’ score of 37 runs in the last five overs was considered disappointing, young left-handed batsman Abhishek Sharma, who has been performing well in the tournament, managed to score the same number of runs off just 12 deliveries, hitting four sixes in the process to set a solid foundation for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Following Abhishek’s impressive performance, Aiden Markram played a steady innings, scoring a half-century off 36 balls, to guide Sunrisers Hyderabad in their run chase. SRH successfully chased down the target in just 18.1 overs with Markram’s contribution playing a significant role in their victory.
