IPL 2023: MS Dhoni’s inclusion doubtful in opening clash of IPL

CSK skipper MS Dhoni‘s inclusion is doubtful ahead of the opening clash of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) GT vs CSK match. After Mukesh Choudhary’s exclusion from the tournament, MS Dhoni’s inclusion too is doubtful for the tournament opener against Gujarat Titans on March 31. Dhoni has developed a niggle in his left knee, which raises speculations about his inclusion in the squad for the opener.

MS Dhoni was also absent from the team’s practice session on Thursday. This has further raised speculations of his injury being serious enough to call for his exclusion ahead of Friday’s match. Moreover, CSK doesn’t have many wicketkeeping options either. 

With some experience behind the stumps, Devon Conway and Ambati Rayudu might be considered first-choice replacements for Dhoni in his wicketkeeping slot.

In Dhoni’s absence, Ravindra Jadeja, who had earlier led Chennai in the bulk of the season in 2022, might once again lead the Chennai team.

Meanwhile, India’s 2020 U-19 World Cup squad player Akash Singh has replaced Mukesh Choudhary. Mukesh Choudhary’s exclusion from the 2023 edition owes to a back injury. 

Akash Singh had a phenomenal performance in the 2020 U-19 World Cup. He took seven wickets in six matches at an economy rate of 3.81.
