IPL 2024: Why Has MS Dhoni Not Faced A Single Ball Yet in IPL 2024? Cricket fans are going crazy wondering why MS Dhoni hasn’t faced a single ball in IPL 2024 yet! Chennai Super Kings’ batting coach Mike Hussey finally spilled the beans at a press conference.

Ruturaj Gaikwad Chipped in With A Solid 46:-

CSK smashed a massive 206 runs in their 20 overs against the Delhi Capitals. Shivam Dube smashed a fiery fifty, and Ruturaj Gaikwad chipped in with a solid 46. But the crowd was left yearning for a glimpse of Dhoni’s batting magic, which sadly didn’t happen.

Hussey explained that head coach Stephen Fleming has a new strategy for the batsmen: keep the scoreboard ticking and push the game forward. He also revealed that the Impact Player rule has shuffled up the batting order, pushing Dhoni down to number 8.

Here’s the twist: Dhoni might not be batting yet, but Hussey assures us he’s been on fire in the nets!

Hussey’s Take:

This is definitely a directive from Fleming. We want to keep the game moving. The Impact rule lets us have an extra batsman and bowler, so our batting order is deeper now. We have MS Dhoni at number 8, which is crazy! But Dhoni’s batting brilliantly in the nets.

They Have The Team’s Full Support:-

Hussey went on to say that the top-order batsmen have been told to play aggressively and not to overthink. They have the team’s full support, and there’ll be no finger-pointing if they get out.

We have a lot of depth, so we told the top-order to be positive. They have the backing of the coaches and captain. We want them to take ownership and push the game forward. If you do well, that’s great! If not, there’ll be no criticism. Fleming wants aggressive batting, and that’s what we’re aiming for.
