Ex Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) is still going strong at the age of 39. Dhoni demonstrated this by running between the wickets in the IPL match against Rajasthan Royals on Monday. Dhoni acknowledged that maintaining health as he gets older is difficult.
“Aging and keeping fit are the two most complicated stuff,” Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said. You don’t want someone to call you unfit when you’re playing. I have to keep up with the younger players because they run a lot, so it’s still a challenge.’
‘The first six balls I played may have lost us some other matches,’ Dhoni said. In that respect, we’ve come a long way. Dhoni also said that he thought he scored less runs when bowling, but the ball was spinning and he was effective in beating Rajasthan Royals.
The Royals team was in good shape at one point, but Jos Buttler hit a six over Ravindra Jadeja in the 10th over, forcing the ball to be shifted. The spinners entangled the royals in spin bowling by using the dry ball instead of the wet ball, putting the game in Super Kings’ possession.
