“MS Is Getting Old”: Virender Sehwag’s Massive Remark On ‘Buzurg’ MS Dhoni

Former Indian cricket team batter Virender Sehwag was all praise for Chennai Super Kings’ fielding effort during their IPL 2024 victory over Gujarat Titans. The match saw several good catches from the CSK fielders including a full-length diving effort from MS Dhoni which earned him plaudits from both fans and experts. During the post-match analysis, Sehwag said that Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra took very good catches and added that ‘buzurg‘ (old) Dhoni also contributed with an impressive effort – a comment that led to a hilarious exchange with fellow expert Rohan Gavaskar.

“Catches win matches. Ajinkya Rahane picked a good catch so did Rachin Ravindra. Buzurg (old) MS Dhoni also picked one,” Sehwag said on Cricbuzz.

“You didn’t refer to Rahane as buzurg,” Gavaskar replied.

However, Sehwag explained that there is an age difference between Rahane and Dhoni which means that he believes Rahane is slightly fitter than the former CSK captain.

“Their age is not the same, there is a difference and Rahane is also fitter than MS Dhoni. There is a big difference between a 35-year-old and a 41-year-old. MS is getting old now there is no doubt about it.”

CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad was also quite impressed with his team’s fielding efforts and he went on to say that it has been one of their strongest points in this year’s IPL.

“I’m impressed with the fielding as well. Maybe one or two youngsters we have extra this year and great effort from Jinks, even in the last game he was running from one end to the other. Fielding is a big tick for us,” he said after the match.

Meanwhile, in a video shared on the official social media handle of the CSK, Ravindra said the CSK fans were loud when they faced the Gujarat-based franchise.

The Kiwi allrounder added that it was a “special feeling” when the home crowd was chanting his name.

“I am not sure I am quite a favourite just yet, but, yeah, I mean, the Chennai fans are amazing. Like, I sort of mentioned last time how loud it was and they didn’t disappoint again today. And I guess it’s always a great, special feeling when you have got fans sharing your name and I mean, I am very grateful that to happen and it’s just shows a love and support the CSK fans have for the players. So very, very thankful and hope it keeps on coming,” Ravindra said.
