Chennai Super Kings fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief as MS Dhoni seems to have shrugged off an injury scare ahead of the opening match of IPL 2023 against Gujarat Titans on 31st March, Friday.

Dhoni is set to lead CSK once again this season as they aim to add a fifth IPL trophy to their collection. Many are expecting this to be the former India captain's final season in the tournament as he gears up to return to Chepauk.

Dhoni is expected to be a key player for CSK this season as the team expects him to lead them to glory with his captaincy and batting skills. However, CSK and their fans were made to sweat on Thursday as reports emerged that their talismanic skipper could be a doubt for the opener against GT.

It was being reported by PTI that Dhoni

had a niggle on his left ankle and had to skip training before the opener. But the doubts have now been put to rest as the CSK captain is expected to play against Hardik Pandya and his men at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Friday.

CSK CEO Kasi Viswanthan was asked, he told PTI, "As far as I am concerned, the skipper is 100 percent playing. I don't know about any other development."

Dhoni's fitness has been getting high praise from all corners with the likes of Shane Watson and Rohit Sharma saying that the CSK skipper can continue playing in the IPL for a few more seasons.

"I've been hearing for the last 2-3 years that this is going to be MS Dhoni's last season. I think he is fit enough to play a few more seasons," Rohit said in MI's pre-season press conference.
