Moeen Ali was purchased by CSK for INR 7 crore within the gamers’ public sale held in February 2021.
“I think what differentiates CSK from other teams is actually how they structure everything… from the squad they have to the way they do things. They look a very calm franchise that doesn’t panic,” the official web site of CSK quoted Moeen as saying.
“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe a great captain does that. I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting,” he added.
Further speaking about how necessary is it for a frontrunner to remain calm, Moeen mentioned: “It’s very important to have strong leadership and coaches who stay calm, who take the pressure off the players as much as they can and are consistent. We are very lucky we have that.”
“At CSK I feel the reality is there for us to win the competition. I’m excited about playing with the players we have here,” he added.
IPL 2021 is slated to start on April 9 with Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) locking horns within the event opener. CSK will play its first match on April 10 in opposition to Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals on the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
