In the current season, Dhoni has amassed 232 runs at a strike rate of 123.40. This is a better performance than the 2020, 2021 season.
The IPL 2022 season has become a “memorable season” for the Chennai Super Kings. Four-time champions Chennai are ninth in the table with 10 defeats. After winning only 4 matches, Chennai bid farewell to Rajasthan in their last match and left with a big disappointment for the fans.
The only consolation for them yesterday was Dhoni’s words “I will play for Chennai next season too”. In this case, let’s see how Dhoni’s performance was in the current IPL season. Dhoni, who has played in 14 matches, has amassed 232 runs, including a fifty. This is Dhoni’s third lowest score in IPL history. This is more runs than the 2020 and 2021 seasons but less runs than all the previous seasons.
Dhoni was the highest scorer with 50 not out. This is also a higher run than the 2020 and 2021 seasons. But it was a lower run than all the previous seasons. His strike rate for the season is 123.40. Dhoni has previously had a lower strike rate in the 2015, 2017, 2020 and 2021 seasons.
His average is 39.20. Dhoni has previously averaged lower than average in the 2010, 2015, 2017, 2020 and 2021 seasons. The total number of stumpings made by Dhoni this season is zero. This is the second time in two seasons in 2008 and 2021 that Dhoni has gone without lightning speed stumping. So in one line about Dhoni’s performance, he is playing better than the 2020, 2021 season and roughly more than the previous seasons.
It is true that Dhoni’s sober play had little impact on CSA’s success in some matches. Criticism of Dhoni has faded as criticism of other players as a whole has been high.
