1) MS Dhoni – The talisman CSK captain has taken a long sabbatical from professional cricket and the IPL 2020 if it happens, would be crucial for him. Ravi Shastri has publicly stated that a great IPL can put MS Dhoni in line for selection of the World T20 squad. There is no doubting the right-handers keeping skills and his ability to help the team in taking the correct reviews, which happens to be a crucial element in the modern game. It is however, the finishing and in particular, big-hitting ability of the former Indian skipper that has been questionable in recent times. The IPL 2020 can play a crucial role in Mahi proving his critics wrong and raising the temperature as far as his boundary-hitting ability is concerned. If the IPL 2020 doesn’t happen at all this year then that could potentially be a huge blow for Dhoni.
