IPL 2023 Auction: MS Dhoni looking to pass baton, Ben Stokes might lead CSK right away, says Scott Sytris
After CSK missed the playoffs earlier this year, MS Dhoni announced that he would participate in the IPL once again in 2023. The four-time champion captain denied retirement rumours and claimed he would undoubtedly participate in the IPL again. The IPL is ready to resume its home-and-away format for the first time since 2019 and Dhoni said he would like to thank supporters in Chennai and throughout India for their support.
MS Dhoni will still serve as Chennai’s captain in the 2023 IPL, according to CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan.
“In my opinion, he will serve as captain. Because he hasn’t frequently been playing between the IPL and now, MS Dhoni has tried to hand the captaincy to someone else. Just a chance for MS Dhoni to hand off the reins. I believe that they will act right away. The captain will be Ben Stokes “Jio Cinema was informed by Styris on Friday, December 23.
Importantly, a day before the IPL 2022 season began, Dhoni gave Ravindra Jadeja the captaincy. In the first half of the IPL earlier this year, Jadeja served as CSK’s captain, but the all-rounder resigned after the team’s rocky start to the year.
In order for Dhoni to lead the squad in the second half of the season, Jadeja returned the captaincy to him.
Yet Stokes’s appearance adds some intrigue. As the powerful teams failed to re-sign Sam Curran, who set a new IPL record for the most expensive player purchased at auction for Rs 18.5 crore by Punjab Kings, CSK purchased England’s Test skipper for a staggering Rs 16.25 crore.
As England’s Test team captain, Stokes has been in outstanding form, leading his team to victories in nine of the last ten matches.
Eoin Morgan, a former captain of England, claimed that Stokes’ expertise in high-pressure situations makes him a steal for Rs 16.25 crore.
“Get Ben Stokes if you have to do anything at all. He is that skilled gamer. He can always rely upon it, as we saw in the World Cup final, to present a calmer, more composed version of himself. The new ball is within his grasp. Simply said, it’s a whole package. What may be bought with money?” Morgan threw in.

While he celebrates Holi with them in the US, a fan paints Kartik Aaryan’s cheeks. See pictures and videos
Kartik Aaryan, the most recent B-town fan favourite, visited Dallas, Texas, to celebrate Holi with followers. The actor from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was in the United States for an event where fans could express their affection for him. They could be seen applauding for him as he arrived in style in a fancy automobile. They could barely contain their excitement when Kartik climbed up on the automobile to wave to his followers.
Footage of Kartik stepping out of the automobile amidst the colours and grinning for the cameras have been making the rounds in the media. He then rose to the top of the automobile and demonstrated his moves before bowing his head in gratitude. In a different video, he can be seen mingling with spectators on stage when a woman calls and asks him to play Holi with her. He pointed to his cheeks with a smile, and everyone applauded the woman as she painted her skin yellow.
The sequel to Kartik Aaryan’s smash horror-comedy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, was just revealed. He revealed a teaser in which his Hindi-speaking persona asked, “Did you believe the narrative was over? Doors are closed so they can one day be opened. Aaryan was later seen singing “Aami ja tomar” while swaying back and forth in a darkened room.
“Main atmaon se sirf baat nahi karta,” he continued. I just don’t converse to spirits, and sometimes they even possess me, as in Aatmaen mere andar aa bhi jaati hain.
“The gates of the “haveli” will now reopen for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 after winning the hearts of millions around the world! Following the huge success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, producers Bhushan Kumar, Anees Bazmee, and actor Kartik Aaryan have teamed up once more to continue the Bhool Bhulaiya franchise, according to a press release from the producers.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which was directed by Anees Bazmee, was one of the most well-received Hindi cinema releases of 2022, grossing more than Rs 250 crore at the box office. Starring in it were Kiara Advani, Tabu, and Kartik Aaryan. Nevertheless, Kartik’s most recent movie, Shehzada, which also starred Kriti Sanon, struggled at the box office and only made a little over Rs 31 crore.

NPP is in the lead in 25 seats, while the UDP is ahead in 11, the TMC and the Cong are each in the lead in 5, and the BJP is in the lead in three
Live updates on the Meghalaya Assembly Election 2023 results: A hanged House? BJP and the National People’s Party (NPP) forming a coalition? Or perhaps a shock from the opposition parties? Even the exit polls in this Northeastern state, Meghalaya, failed to identify a clear winner, thus anything is conceivable there. When the ballots are being counted, all eyes will be on the alliances that are being formed. Today, the UDP is in the lead in 11 seats, followed by the TMC in five, the Congress in five, the BJP in three, and the ruling NPP in 25. Conrad Sangma, the chief minister and leader of the National People’s Party (NPP), is in the lead in the South Tura constituency by a margin of 2,830 votes.
Conrad K. Sangma, the chief minister of Meghalaya, thanked the state’s voters for supporting the National People’s Party (NPP), but said that the party still lacked a majority and would have to wait for the final results before making any decisions. “I appreciate the state’s residents choosing to support our party. They have our appreciation. The CM stated, “We still lack the numbers and are awaiting the final results before deciding how to proceed.
According to exit polls conducted by several news outlets, the northeastern state will have a hung Assembly because no party will have more than half the seats in the 60-member chamber. According to the four exit polls combined, the National People’s Party (NPP), which is now in power, may win 20 seats. The BJP, an NPP ally in power but a different candidate in the polls, may raise its vote total from 2 to 6.
