MS Dhoni made the risky decision of selecting Ajinkya Rahane for the CSK team for the IPL 2023.


The Chennai Super Kings’ impactful batsman, Ajinkya Rahane, has surprised so many legendary cricketers with his performance. The 34-year-old talented cricketer, Rahane, has created a record of generating 224 runs with a strike rate of 189.83, and he is also second on the list of players who have played more than 100 games in the IPL.

Ajinkya Rahane is an Indian cricketer who has played for the Rajasthan Royals, the Rising Pune Supergiant, and the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the past. And also, currently, he got placed with the Chennai Super Kings for playing in the IPL 2023.

Rahane has scored 3933 runs in 149 IPL matches at an average of 32.93, with two centuries and 27 fifties to his name. While his solid technique and ability to anchor the inning make him a valuable asset for any team,

While the Chennai Super Kings franchise gave INR 50 lakh to appoint Rahane to their team during the auction, It was a quite risky decision for the CEO of CSK, Kasi Viswanathan, to appoint Ajinkya to their team. However, MS Dhoni showed a lot of faith in his decision to take Ajinkya into their team.

During the Syed Zayed Mushtaq Ali Trophy competition that happened last year, in which Rahane attempted badly because of that reason, the franchise owner didn’t have faith in him. He made only 112 runs in just eight games last season. However, he gave everyone an answer about his ability to play cricket.

With due respect to Rahane’s game and MS Dhoni’s strategy, the Chennai Super Kings have shown good availability in their game. However, they are very sure to get placed in the playoffs of the IPL 2023 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The next match between the Chennai teams will be held on April 30 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
