Former India batsman Aakash Chopra is all praise for Chennai Super Kings as well as the way skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has turned back the clock.
"Chennai Super Kings is one side who are playing with only five batsmen and they are still good enough to score 200 runs nine out of 10 times. So they currently is the best batting unit in the IPL," Chopra was quoted as saying in a PTI report.
CSK have done brilliantly with the likes of Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, Suresh Raina, Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo all contributing. "I am pleasantly surprised. If you have asked me this question about year ago, I would have said, things are not looking great," Chopra added.
"He is taking too much time, may be T20 format is no longer his primary format because what he could do at 25, he is not able to do at 35. But then the way, he has turned it around, the second wind seems to be stronger than the first and he has rewound the clock. It is absolutely sensational," Chopra said in praise of Dhoni.
Chennai are currently table toppers in the IPL.
