The Chennai Super Kings are gearing up for men’s IPL 2024 with the “cool captain” and the master strategist – MS Dhoni as captain! This could be his final season because of his knee issue, and CSK fans will be excited to see him lead one last charge for the trophy. However, Robin Uthappa has said that “Chennai Super Kings would let MS Dhoni play even if he was in a wheelchair”. 

Shardul Thakur, the Ranji Trophy winner is excited to rejoin CSK hoping to “grow” under the world-class captain MSD. However, question marks remain around Stokes’ availability due to international commitments, and finding the perfect bowling combination will be key for CSK to challenge for the title.
