New Delhi: England cricketer Moeen Ali has expressed his thoughts on what it really means to play under the leadership of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ali will be repping the iconic CSK yellow jersey during the upcoming 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The allrounder was bought in by CSK for INR 7 crore in the IPL 2021 players’ auction held in February 2021.

“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,” the official website of CSK quoted Moeen as saying.

“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. 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 added.

Further speaking about how important is it for a leader to be calm and collective, Moeen said: “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.”

“At CSK I feel the reality is there for us to win the competition. I’m excited about playing with the players we have here,” he added.

On March 7, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had officially announced the schedule for the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with CSK taking on taking on last year’s finalists Delhi Capitals (DC) in their opening match in Mumbai on April 10.
