MS Dhoni successfully undergoes knee surgery in Mumbai

Chennai Super Kings skipper and former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who was seen struggling with his knee in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League has successfully undergone surgery on his left knee in a Mumbai hospital.

As per Cricbuzz, the operation went well and Dhoni is perfectly fit. Initially, it was expected that he would remain in the hospital for two more days, but later in the evening, it emerged that Dhoni had been discharged.

Dhoni, who led Chennai Super Kings to their fifth IPL title, had flown to Mumbai from Ahmedabad after the IPL final and consulted renowned sports orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, who is also on the BCCI medical panel and had performed surgeries on a number of top Indian cricketers, including Rishabh Pant.

According to John Gloster, former India and current Rajasthan Royals physio, who has worked with Dr Pardiwala, Dhoni is in safe hands.

“Dr Dinshaw is a very competent surgeon, particularly for knees and shoulders. We are lucky to have someone of his capability in India. He is a surgeon who would intervene only when he is assured that the outcome will be significant,” Gloster told Cricbuzz.

CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan revealed that he spoke to Dhoni after the surgery. “I spoke to him after the operation. I cannot explain what the surgery is about but we have been told it is a keyhole surgery. He sounded fine in our conversation,” the CSK official confirmed.

Dhoni had played the entire IPL season with heavy strapping on his left knee and while he looked absolutely fine during wicket-keeping, he came into bat as low as No. 8 at times and didnโ€™t look in his element while running between the wickets. However, things will be better now as the wicketkeeper-batsman will look to recuperate and rebuild.

Here’s presenting the best-playing XI from the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League

Openers: Faf du Plessis and Shubman Gill

IPL Stars: Faf du Plessis and Shubman Gill

The Indian Premier League 2023 was dominated by openers. From Yashasvi Jaiswal to David Warner to Faf du Plessis to Shubman Gill, everyone performed exceptionally. The top-scoring batter at the end of the league campaign, Faf du Plessis truly had his finest IPL season yet.ย  He scored 730 runs in just 14 innings at an astonishing average of 56.15. Faf’s consistency helped Royal Challengers Bangalore to win many matches on his own.

Partnering with the RCB skipper will be the Orange Cap holder Shubman Gill. Gill is in tremendous form. It is best ever IPL season yet. Gill has amassed 851 runs in 16 innings at an average of 60.79 and a strike rate of 156.43. Gill has terrorised the bowlers with his elegant strokeplay. He has scored 3 massive hundreds this season. His ton against Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier 2 is one of the most excellent hundreds ever witnessed by us in the entirety of the Indian Premier League.

Middle Order: Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Rinku Singh

IPL Stars: Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Rinku Singh

The middle order of the best-playing XI of IPL 2023 is filled with superstars and emerging stars. First on the list is IPL veteran Virat Kohli. After showing signs of form, Virat Kohli exploded in the 16th edition of IPL. Kohli was third on the Orange Cap list, scoring 639 runs in 14 innings. “King Kohli” scored 2 big hundreds in this edition of IPL that helped take his team to victory in crucial matches.

Next is World No. 1 T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav. Surya didn’t quite set the stage on fire. In the first five matches, Suryakumar Yadav scored just 66 runs. However, the Mumbai Indians batter turned the tournament on its head. In the next seven matches, Surya scored 539 runs at a jaw-breaking strike rate of 181.14. Surya’s unconventional yet effective shots were a highlight of IPL 2023. His six over third man off Mohammad Shami’s ball is a shot etched in the memory of the fans. In IPL 2023, Suryakumar Yadav scored 605 runs in 16 innings at an average of 43.21. The right-hander scored one hundred against Gujarat Titans in the league stage.

When it comes to the choice of a wicketkeeper, no one beats the impact Heinrich Klaasen had, no matter where SRH finished this season. The South African was the biggest performer for his franchise, with no other player coming even close. Klassen scored 448 runs in 12 innings at an excellent strike rate of 177.07. The right-hander also smashed a wonderful century against Royal Challengers Bangalore to take his team to a respectable score.

Kolkata Knight Rider’s only glimmer of hope in an otherwise disappointing season; Rinku Singh also makes the list. After showing signs of brilliance last season, Rinku Singh got a consistent run of games in IPL 2023. The left-handed basher smacked 474 runs in 14 innings at an average of 59.52 and a strike rate of 139.52. Playing the role of a finisher, Rinku played his role to perfection. The match where he smashed 30 runs off Yash Dayal’s last over is the stuff of legends.

All-rounders: Hardik Pandya (C), Rashid Khan

IPL Stars: Hardik Pandya (C), Rashid Khan

Although Hardik Pandya the all-rounder hasn’t been able to repeat his remarkable IPL 2022 form, Hardik Pandya’s leadership skills were on point. The current Team India T20I skipper won 10 matches out of 14 games to top the Indian Premier League 2023 table. The all-rounder has kept things simple and not experimented during crunch situations. The Gujarat Titans skipper has scored 325 runs in 15 innings. In bowling, he has been off-colour. The all-rounder could only take 3 wickets whilst going for 8.91 runs per over.

Another Gujarat Titans player, Rashid Khan makes the list. Afghanistan’s current T20I skipper Rashid Khan is second on the Purple Cap list. The mystery spinner has taken 27 wickets in 16 innings. Rashid has also contributed with the bat whenever presented with an opportunity. During their league stage match against Mumbai Indians, the swashbuckling batter threatened to take take the match away from Mumbai with a whirlwind of an innings.

Bowlers: Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Matheesha Pathirana

Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Matheesha Pathirana

Sitting at the top of the Purple Cap list, Mohammad Shami has been in tremendous form for the Gujarat Titans this season. The right-arm pacer has taken wickets at every stage of the game. Be it powerplay or death overs, Mohammad Shami has delivered his best for the team. The pacer has taken 28 wickets in 16 games at an average of 17.60 and an economy rate of 7.90.

IPL’s highest wicket-taker, Yuzvendra Chahal was also in excellent form this season. Playing for Rajasthan Royals, the leg-spinner took 21 scalps in just 14 games to become the highest wicket-taker for his side in IPL 2023. With a best of 4 for 17 runs, Chahal was very economical throughout the season.

Matheesha Pathirana has been the “find of the season”. The Sri Lankan’s deadly and accurate yorkers have been unplayable in the death overs. Taking 17 wickets in just 11 innings, Pathirana average 19.23 runs per wicket and has an economy of 7.72 runs per over.

Special Mention: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Piyush Chawla, David Warner, Mohit Sharma

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Piyush Chawla, David Warner, Mohit Sharma

Mumbai-born Yashasvi Jaiswal brought his domestic form into IPL 2023. The left-hander smacked 625 runs in just 14 innings at a fantastic strike rate of 163.61. Jaiswal was breathing fire in this edition of the IPL. During a match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, he set a new record by scoring the fastest 50 in IPL history, achieving this feat in just 13 balls.

Piyush Chawla, the old willy spinner from Uttar Pradesh, reinvented himself in this season of IPL. Playing for Mumbai Indians, the leg-spinner took 22 wickets in 15 games. Be it powerplay or middle overs, Chawla took wickets consistently. He never allowed the opposition to get settled, outfoxing the batters with his googlies. Being the highest wicket-taker for his side, Chawla was the fourth-highest wicket-taker this season.

Delhi Capitals had a disappointing season. The team could only bag 10 points in the entire tournament and was the first team to get eliminated from the playoffs stage. However, their skipper David Warner performed exceptionally. In 14 innings, the southpaw amassed 516 runs at an average of 36.86 and a strike rate of 131.63.

Mohit Sharma last played an IPL game in IPL 2019 before this season. He was playing for Chennai Super Kings and couldnโ€™t impress the management and MS Dhoni. He was then overlooked by all the franchises. But Gujarat Titans called him as a net bowler in IPL 2022 and he immediately left an indelible impression on Head Coach Ashish Nehra and skipper Hardik Pandya. Mohit Sharma repaid their faith in IPL 2023. The right-arm pacer took 27 wickets in 14 games at an average of 13.37. Sharma was second on the list of Purple Cap, behind his Gujarat Titans teammate Mohammad Shami.

CSK Team

Breaking: MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings are IPL champions!!!

In a night full of thrills and chills, Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings lifted the IPL trophy for the fifth time after defeating defending champions Gujarat Titans by 5 wickets. The victory made CSK go on level with Mumbai Indians who have also won the prestigious trophy 5 times.

SS Ton Cricket Bat

Coming to the match, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to field. Despite the tough bowling conditions, Chennai’s bowlers found it hard to break through Gujarat’s batting order. Tamil Nadu-born Sai Sudharshan was the highest score for the defending champions; scoring 96 runs off 47 balls. Sudharshan’s clever batting enabled Gujarat Titans to breach the 200-run mark.

The second innings was marred with rain. After a couple of hours of rain intermission, play began with revised conditions. Chennai Super Kings needed 171 runs off 15 overs. Although CSK were on track, they lost wickets on regular intervals. However, Shivam Dube; who’s been a totally different player this season found able partners in Ambati Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja to win the game for his team.

Ravindra Jadeja who hit the winning runs was seen celebrating in front of his home crowd. In a post-match interview, he stated, “Feeling amazing winning fifth title in front of my home crowd. They’ve come in big numbers to support CSK. This crowd has been amazing. They were waiting for rain to stop till late night. Want to say big congratulations to CSK fans. Want to dedicate this win to one of the special members of our team – MS Dhoni.”

Losing skipper Hardik Pandya was full of praise for his team. He said, ” I think we tick a lot of boxes as a team. We play with a lot of heart, really proud of the way we kept fighting. We have a motto – we win together, we lose together. I’m not going to make excuses, CSK played the better cricket.”

The 16th edition of IPL has truly been a remarkable one. While Shubman Gill (890 runs) won the Orange Cap, his teammate Mohammad Shami (28 wickets) took home the Purple Cap. Young batting sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal won the Emerging Player of the Tournament. The left-hander made 625 runs at a strike rate of 164. Rashid Khan won the award for Catch of the Season, for his catch of Kyle Mayers in the GT vs LSG game. In addition, Delhi Capitals won the Fairplay Award.

IPL Qualifier 2 GT vs MI: Expected lineups, Match Timings, Venue and Dream11 Predictions

Two strong teams will be going head-to-head in the IPL 2023 Qualifier 2. Defending champions Gujarat Titans, who are coming on the back of a defeat to Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1 will be clashing against 5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians. The Men in Blue and Gold have qualified for the match after defeating Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator match played yesterday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Mumbai Indians will be coming into the match with a lot of confidence.

Their bowling looks a bit bleak. However, Akash Madhwal’s meteoric rise has given a new lease of life to Mumbai Indians’ pace department. They also have bankable stars like Piyush Chawla, who is having a phenomenal season, and Jason Behrendorff. The Mumbai-based franchise has peaked at the right time and seems unbeatable in its current form.

Gujarat Titans are the defending champions. And they have proved why they are so. The Hardik Pandya-led side has repeated last season’s feat by topping the Indian Premier League table. However, they lost their track a bit after facing a massive defeat by Chennai Super Kings in the first Qualifier.

But not to worry. The team will bounce back and give a tough fight to Mumbai Indians.

Team India pacer Mohammad Shami leads the charts for Purple Cap. The right-arm pacer has taken 26 wickets in 15 matches.

Akash Madhwal with Mumbai Indians Team

Madhwal’s deadly bowling powers Mumbai Indians to IPL Qualifier 2

Mumbai Indians have won yet another IPL playoffs match. After qualifying for the knockout stages on the last day, Mumbai Indians have made sure they show what their favourite team is capable of doing. The Men in Blue and Gold defeated Lucknow Super Giants by a massive margin of 81 runs in the Eliminator to qualify for the next stage.

SS Ton Cricket Bat

Electing to bat first, Mumbai had a bad start; losing both the openers in the powerplay. However, World Number 1 T20 batter Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green stitched together a wonderful partnership to steady their ship. But, the ship sunk as Afghanistan’s Naveen-ul-Haq dismissed both set batters in one over.

Tilak Varma and Nehal Wadhera then took over the scoring duties and ensured the team gets to a par score. With some intelligent batting, Mumbai Indians reached 182/8 in their 20 overs.

Lucknow never seemed to be in the chase. Mumbai Indians find Akash Madhwal dismantled their batting lineup. The Uttarakhand-based bowler took 5 wickets for just 5 runs. In the process, Madhwal registered the best figures in the IPL playoffs. Also, he registered the joint-first most economical five-for in the Indian Premier League.

With this win, Mumbai Indians will be facing the Gujarat Titans in the Qualifier 2. The two teams will be facing each other at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 26th May.

Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians will be facing each other in the Eliminator happening on 24th May at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. While the 5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians will be looking to add one more trophy to their cabinet. Lucknow Super Giants will be trying to carve their name into IPL history.

Lucknow Super Giants has an upper hand over Mumbai Indians as the team has defeated the Mumbai-based on all three occasions when the two teams have clashed with each other. However, Mumbai Indians will be looking to forget the past and think of this match as a new opportunity.

SS Ton Cricket Bat

Both teams are stacked with match-winners. While Mumbai Indians have one of the most dangerous batting lineups, with Suryakumar Yadav getting back in form at the right time. Fellow batters Ishan Kishan, Cameron Green, Nehal Wadhera, and Tilak Varma have also fired whenever an opportunity was presented. However, their bowling lacks the punch. Mumbai are dearly missing the services of their star bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer. But Piyush Chawla, one of the most inexperienced IPL spinners has come to party as the leg-spinner has taken 20 wickets from 14 games.

For Lucknow Super Giants, there have been different match winners for every match. Although they will miss the services of regular skipper KL Rahul, the team has seen different match winners in different matches. From Marcus Stoinis to Kyle Mayers to Nicholas Pooran, the Lucknow-based franchisee has seen players take responsibility and win matches. In the bowling department, Ravi Bishnoi has been their standout performer. Bishnoi has found able support in Yash Thakur, Mark Wood, and stand-in skipper Krunal Pandya.

Virat Kohli in RCB Jersey

Virat Kohli’s masterful ton goes in vain as RCB gets knocked out of IPL

After smashing a wonderful century against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Virat Kohli scored another magnificent ton in a do-or-die encounter with the 2022 IPL champions Gujarat Titans. The Team India batter scored 101 runs in just 61 balls, but couldn’t take his team past the finish line courtesy Shubman Gill.

After being put into bat, Royal Challengers Bangalore had a great start. The opening duo of Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli put on 67 runs in just 7 overs. However, the Men in Red couldn’t quite continue their momentum as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Kohli, the man for big matches had other plans. The right-hander went hammer and tongs from one end as he got good support from lower-order batsmen including Michael Bracewell and Anuj Rawat. With their help, Kohli took the team total to 197. Virat Kohli, who batted till the end, smashed 13 boundaries and one maximum.

Coming to the chase, Gujarat made sure they never got behind the required run rate. Shubman Gill, who is in a purple patch, was the hero of the chase. The young batsman smashed 104 runs in just 52 balls to take his team to victory. Gill, paced his innings to perfection to knock out Royal Challengers Bangalore out of the Indian Premier League.

In the post-match presentation, Faf du Plessis, skipper of RCB, was all praise for his teammate; Virat Kohli. He said, ” It was wet in the first innings as well, but there wasn’t a lot of grip in the second innings and also we had to change the ball quite a few times during the second innings. Virat played an unbelievable knock to give us a chance and thought that was a good score, but Shubman played incredibly well to take the game away from us.”

With Royal Challengers Bangalore not able to win this do-or-die encounter, it is the Mumbai Indians who took the final playoff spot. Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings, the table toppers respectively will be facing each other in Qualifier 1 which will be played on 23rd May at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. While Lucknow Super Giants will be facing the 5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator scheduled to be played on 24th May at the same ground.
