IPL 2023 is set to commence on 31st March where this time all the 10 teams are evenly matched. It is assumed that IPL 2023 would be the last season of legendary skipper MS Dhoni. CSK fans would be hoping that MS Dhoni bids adieu to IPL in a grand fashion by winning the IPL. Last time in 2022, CSK had a forgettable season where they finished in 9th position.
The two heavyweights of IPL: MI & CSK would be keen to make a staggering statement that they are not done yet. It would be interesting to see whether Gujarat Titans (GT) can defend their title as this time BCCI has brought back home & away venue systems where we would witness competitive wickets.
Harbhajan Singh on MS Dhoni
Harbhajan Singh was having an interaction with the YouTube channel named ‘Sports Yaari’ and was asked about is there any rift between him & MS Dhoni.
“Why would I have a problem with MS Dhoni? We played a lot of cricket for India and have been very, very good friends, and still are. He became busy with his life, and I became busy with mine, and we don’t meet very often. But there’s no rift whatsoever.” said Harbhajan Singh.
“As far as I know, he hasn’t taken away any of my properties (laughs). But yes, I am interested in some of his properties, especially his farmhouse.” he added.
Harbhajan Singh on CSK & Ben Stokes
Harbhajan Singh was asked whether CSK can make a comeback after a dreadful IPL 2022 season & also about Ben Stokes’ presence in IPL 2023.
“You cannot write off CSK. If you start thinking that the team isn’t going to do anything, they are going to prove you wrong. It’s lovely to see Ben Stokes with the CSK side. He will bring a lot to the table.” said Harbhajan Singh.
“Ben Stokes can win you tournaments, as simple as that. That one guy is enough, he will stay till the end. Champions know how to win matches. CSK have MS Dhoni as the biggest champion, and now Stokes has come in, who is the biggest champion in world cricket today.” he added.
