Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful franchises in the Indian Premier League so far. With Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the helm, CSK has won three trophies in the last 12 seasons. Playing for CSK is considered a major privilege problem especially with some people who are from the world of cricket. For young cricket players, this is an opportunity to learn from some of the best cricket players such as MS Dhoni, Stephen Fleming, and Michael Hussey.
In a recent interaction, Mitchell Santner, who is part of the franchise opening his time with CSK, said that IPL is one of the best T20 tournaments in the world. “Yes, the IPL, I think, is the highlight of all T20 tournaments and I was very happy when I was picked up [in 2018], “New Zealand spinners said to ESPNCricinfo.
“There are some world-class spinners in Chennai to talk to and play with – guys like Harbhajan [Singh], which I have watched a lot, [Ravindra] Jadeja and Imran Tahir too, “Santner added.
“When I was injured the first year I was very disappointed, but I was given the chance last time to go and experience it. This is an untrustworthy tournament and definitely the best cricket match in terms of T20 league. “It’s great to play on a different pitch to New Zealand,” he continued.
Santner added that it was a great experience for him to share a dressing room with MS Dhoni. “I have played against MS [Dhoni] a lot, so to share the dressing room with him and talk to him about how he does something is extraordinary. “Even people like Suresh Raina – you watched it from other teams you joined,” he said.
Santner’s debut game for CSK last year was in Chepauk against Rajasthan Royals and he was beaten 26 times in 2 overs. Even though Chennai won the game, Santner admitted that it was a difficult match for him.
“Yes, it was a difficult match. We finished very late in the New Zealand summer and had to shoot more than one or two days before the first match, so we didn’t get experience [the dew] until the match, “he said.
“That is a challenge – we don’t have much in New Zealand. I felt like I was bowling almost to my toes and it still came out quite full. But after that we practiced, put water in the ball, put it in a bucket, and learned to deal with it. After that, it might not be that bad, “he added further.
