New Delhi: Former Indian team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) is considered one of the best captains in the world. Dhoni, who was CSK captain in the IPL, changes the game behind the wicket.
In the current IPL season, four of the eight teams are in the hands of wicket keepers and Rajasthan Royals star batsman Jos Buttler attributed this to Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni).
The captain is made up of four wicket guards
As always, Dhoni (MS Dhoni) is the captain of the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021. Besides Dhoni, the Punjab Kings made wicket batsman KL Rahul captain last season. While the Royals of Rajasthan handed over the captaincy to Sanju Samson this year. So at the same time Rishabh Pant is captain of Delhi due to Shreyas Iyer’s injury.

Butler (Jos Buttler) said: ‘Credit for this practice of teller captains goes to Dhoni and his sixth sense decisions. He was a great captain and there are a lot of players who want to repeat his success. He said capturing from the back of the wicket gives an added advantage and he’s confident captain Samson of the Royals for a good performance this season.
Butler expects a lot from Rajasthan
Butler (Jos Buttler) added: “ The wicket keeper can keep a close eye on the back of the wicket which makes it easier to make decisions. We have a very diverse team this season with all-rounders and new captains like Ben Stokes and Chris Maurice. Sanju has been with the Royals for a long time and is a very calm person.
