Chennai Super Kings station wagon Mouen Ali on Wednesday guaranteed the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and said most cricketers expect to play under him as he helps them improve their game.
Dhoni is preparing to lead the CSK franchise in the upcoming edition of IPL from April 9.
“I’ve talked to players who have played under the MC and they tell me how it improves their game. I believe a great captain does that,” the English all-rounder was quoted as saying by the CSK website.
“I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and clarity it gives people. It’s exciting,” he added.
Moen, who said he was looking forward to playing under Donnie, said it was very important to have a strong leadership and coaches to keep calm.
“It is very important to have a strong leadership and coaches to keep calm, who take the pressure off the players as much as they can and are consistent. We are very lucky to have him,” he added.
“At CSK, I feel the reality is there to win the race. I’m excited about playing with the players we have here,” said the 33-year-old left-handed batsman, a spinner who was put up for the IPL auction in February.
Moeen, who previously appeared for Royal Challengers Bangalore, said, “I think what sets CSK apart from other teams is actually how they structure everything, from the lineup they have, to the way they do things. . “
CSK players are currently training in Mumbai, where they are playing their first five IPL-14 games, starting against Delhi Capitals on April 10.
Donnie’s side began a practice in Chennai on March 8th before moving the base to Mumbai.
