Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians is the most successful IPL franchise with four titles to their name and are closely followed by MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings with three titles to their name.
Ashish Nehra said that there have been suggestions recently that MS Dhoni is overly passionate when it comes to CSK. Ashish Nehra added that MS Dhoni is very passionate about CSK but that doesn’t mean he is any less passionate when playing for India.

There are a lot of questions hovering over MS Dhoni's future in international cricket. MS Dhoni has been on a sabbatical since the conclusion of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. MS Dhoni was supposed to make a comeback to cricket with IPL 2020, which was scheduled to start on March 29. But the tournament was postponed to April 15 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
