- Under Dhoni's captaincy, Chennai reached the final for the 10th time.
- The synergy between the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association and its team is very strong.
- Dhoni did well with weak bowling
Australian cricket legend Matthew Hayden believes MS Dhoni is a magician who turns someone else's waste into gold and has contributed so much to Chennai Super Kings' success that talk about his future with the franchise as a player is almost irrelevant. In the captaincy of Dhoni, CSK has reached the IPL final for the tenth time. At the beginning of the tournament, the team's bowling was weak, but Dhoni got the best performance from that. The way Ajinkya Rahane (Ajinkya Rahane) and Shivam Dubey (Shivam Dubey) were used in batting is being praised everywhere. In the tournament, Dhoni has played with a knee injury. He has given himself eight to nine months to decide on his future as a player. Hayden, however, believes that he will not play in the next IPL.

Hayden said, "M.S. is a magician. He takes someone else's garbage and turns it into gold. He is a very skillful and positive captain. She has said a very interesting thing which shows her humility. The synergy between the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association and its team is very strong. And he also acts as a link in the process of strengthening the team. There is a process to achieve every goal and he did it first with the Indian team and now with CSK.
"Whether he will play next year or not is irrelevant now," he said at an event organised by the University of Technology Sydney. Hayden also said that the growing trend of T20 cricket around the world has made it difficult for players to play all three formats. The former Kangaroo opener said, "The time for players playing in all three formats is about to end. There is a lot of excitement about playing Test cricket and the World Test Championship is an example of that. Apart from this, a lot of T20 cricket is happening.
Hayden said players who have given up national contracts to play franchise cricket around the world cannot be blamed. "It is certain that tomorrow if children want to play cricket, they will play franchise cricket. He has seen how active many players from weaker sections, especially West Indies cricketers, are. For example, would Nicholas Pooran want to play Test cricket? Before that, Dwayne Bravo played Test cricket, but mostly played franchise cricket around the world.
