MS Dhoni is widely known to have a great cricketing brain. It is not without a reason that he is one of the most successful leaders especially in white-ball cricket. He not only has a knack of identifying talent but also of backing them till it bears fruits. In another testimony of his ability to see the potential in a cricketer, his old social media post involving Ravindra Jadeja has resurfaced on the internet. While MSD had tweeted in 2013 about Jadeja’s unreal catch taking ability, the Chennai Super Kings all-rounder grabbed four catches against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.
Dhoni’s tweet about Jadeja’s fielding on April 9, 2013 read: “Sir Jadeja doesn’t run to take catch but the ball finds him and lands on his hand.” Notably, CSK defeated RR by 45 runs in this encounter.

CSK win 2 out of 3 in IPL 2021
Meanwhile, Dhoni-led CSK have got off to a good start in IPL 2021. While they had a disappointing run in IPL 2020 where they eventually finished seventh on the table, they have won two of their first three matches and currently find themselves at number 2 on the points tally with the best net run rate in the league. Both their batting and bowling have improved with every match and Chennai fans would hope that even captain Dhoni joins the party with some runs and makes the team a more formidable unit.
