The 67th match of IPL 2023 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals. This is a very important match for CSK. In this match, CSK will have to win at all costs if they are to secure the playoff ticket. On the other hand, Delhi has nothing to lose, so this team can ruin the game like they did with Punjab Kings in the last match. Ahead of this big match, a big update on the fitness of MS Dhoni came out. The team’s hitting coach, Mike Hussey, has given a big statement about his knee issue.

Hussey said ahead of the big game against Delhi Capitals that captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s knee is not 100 per cent. Significantly, Dhoni’s knee problem has been coming to the fore throughout the season. But despite this, he did not give up wicketkeeping. Apart from this, he has also scored useful runs in many games by landing big hits for the team in slog overs. Questions have been raised about landing him too low for him, on which Hussey gave a clear statement. He said Mahi doesn’t want to put pressure on his knee by running between wickets, so he wants to ‘finish’ it by moving down the batting order. For this reason, he doesn’t come in 10, 11 or 12 so he doesn’t have to run fast, which will put pressure on the knee.

Michael Hussey further stated that he avoids going out to bat as long as possible so he can play fast late innings. He has placed a lot of faith in Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu. In the last match against Delhi, Dhoni was seen struggling in the run between wickets. He was wearing an ice pack on his knee even as he walked around the pitch to greet the fans after the loss to KKR in Chepauk. Hussey also said that we received tremendous support from the spectators in all fields. MS is a legend and it’s not every day that you get to play in such an environment.
