Dale Steyn says “MS Dhoni is the poster boy for cool captaincy” in IPL 2021. Steyn considers that MS Dhoni’s prowess in captaincy. Also, makes up for his misfortune with the bat in his twilight years. Dhoni has led the Chennai Super Kings to their ninth IPL final. Also, in 12 attempts, and is on the lookout to win his fourth IPL title. Steyn mentions that when captains don’t perform. It usually rubs off on the team. It has not since both CSK and the Kolkata Knight Riders have made it to the final. Eoin Morgan has endured a torrid time with the bat this season.
“It boils down to the last game, who can handle the pressure the most and MS just looks like the guy that has done it so many times. Morgan is catching up, winning the world cup, and having done well with the England team and all but MS Dhoni is the poster boy for cool, calm, and collective when it comes to captaincy. Even if he has not scored runs,” Steyn said.
MS Dhoni has achieved it all when it comes to captaincy. Also, in the international arena as well as franchise cricket. Eoin Morgan will be looking to win the IPL. And then lead England to glory in the upcoming T20 World Cup as well.
Lastly, Eoin Morgan and Dhoni are struggling with the bat. Steyn outlined how pressure might be the difference-maker considering the one-off clash remaining in the final. Steyn has only contributed 129 runs while Dhoni has accounted for just 114 runs with the bat this season.
Dale Steyn says, “Both of these teams have made the finals and both the captains have not done well at all. But it might boil down to pressure. Leading up to the tournament, everyone contributed where they can, but this is one game and that might be the problem. So far, it has not bothered both sides, they made it to the finals without the captain scoring runs,” Steyn explained.
