Michael Vaughan, a former England captain, recently commended Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, for his outstanding leadership abilities in the Indian Premier League. According to Vaughan, MS Dhoni is the “best ever” white ball captain and stands out from other captains due to his ability to remain composed in stressful situations and make quick choices.
CSK defeated GT by five wickets in a last-ball thriller to win the IPL 2023 title at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Chennai put in an impressive team effort in their pursuit of a revised target of 171 runs in 15 overs after a long weather delay. The hitters’ perfect timing of their actions ensured that the required run rate never sharply increased in the face of a difficult chase. Jadeja’s composed innings of 15 runs without being dismissed ultimately proved essential, as he scored 10 important runs off the final two deliveries to secure a memorable triumph.
With his blazing 47 off just 25 balls, Devon Conway played a key part in the chase and laid the groundwork for the team. Ajinkya Rahane (27) and Shivam Dube, who finished unbroken at 32, both made contributions that helped pave the way for Jadeja’s heroics.

In his 250th IPL game, MS Dhoni suffered a rare defeat when he was removed for a golden duck, which caused the startled audience to fall silent. But in MS Dhoni’s tenth IPL final as captain, luck was on his side as his team won.
