MS Dhoni might be barred from the 2023 Indian Premier League championship game, according to Insidesport. He had previously been accused of violating the code of conduct, but he deliberately squandered time during Qualifier 1.
The CSK captain was spotted fighting with the umpires during Gujarat Titans’ chase, which added a five-minute delay. Matheesha Pathirana was prevented from bowling in the 16th over because the umpires noticed he had been absent from the pitch for some time.
The extended conversation Dhoni had with the officials didn’t sit well with Simon Doull and Sunil Gavaskar.
“That exchange with the umpires for five minutes was unnecessary. Instead of allowing another player to bowl, MS Dhoni called time out, according to Simon Doull.
Regarding whether the umpires have filed a complaint against him, there has been no news. However, if the accusation is brought up, Dhoni can be fined or suspended.
In the GT vs. CSK match, the home team defeated the Titans by a margin of 15 runs to advance to the 16th season’s championship. The four-time champions will be competing in their tenth final.
