One of the new entrants into the Chennai Super Kings Moeen Ali is all aware of the legacy of the franchise and commended the leadership of MS Dhoni for not creating a panicking atmosphere for players. Instead, he said, that the captain MSD takes responsibility and make life easier for the players with consistent policies.
“It’s very important to have strong leadership and coaches who stay calm, who take the pressure off the players as much as they can and are consistent. We are very lucky we have that,” Moeen said to the CSK website.
“I think what differentiates CSK from other teams is actually how they structure everything… from the squad they have to the way they do things. They look a very calm franchise that doesn’t panic.”
Moeen said that he has had words with players who have played games and improved their games under the leadership of MS Dhoni. He added that players emphasized the clarity of roles MS Dhoni provides to his players which help them in shaping their gameplans.
“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe a great captain does that,” he added.
“I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting,” he concluded.
However, Moeen Ali is not missing out on the main purpose of winning the IPL title in the upcoming seasons starting on April 9.
Moeen Ali was bought by the Super Kings in the auction for Rs 7 crore for his all-around abilities. He is capable of providing them flourish with the bat both at the top and in the lower order as well as a bowling option with his accurate off-spin.
