Ahmedabad: Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s left knee injury has raised doubts over his participation in the IPL opener against Gujarat Titans here on Friday, but the team CEO ruled out such a possibility.
The 41-year-old former India skipper has apparently sustained a niggle on his left knee during a training session in Chennai and didn’t bat at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera during CSK’s nets on Thursday.
When CSK CEO Kasi Viswanthan was asked, he told PTI, “As far as I am concerned, the skipper is 100 percent playing. I don’t know about any other development.” In case Dhoni doesn’t play, CSK then might ask one among Devon Conway or Ambati Rayudu to keep wickets, as they don’t have any specialised stumper in their ranks.
