Why does Dhoni get angry very often in IPL 2018?
MS Dhoni is probably in the last few years of his cricketing career. It is also clearly evident that he is really passionate for the Chennai Super Kings.
Also, he is playing as a captain after almost a year. He wants to prove his merit as a captain once again. The 2019 world cup is also very important to him. He wants to showcase his leadership as well as batting skills in the IPL in preparation for the world cup.
Dhoni never gets angry when opposition plays much better than his team but he always gets irritated when his team plays poor cricket.
The CSK bowlers have also not been quite up to the mark. They have thrown away matches by bowling and fielding errors, which is very unusual for CSK.
He has openly criticized his bowling attack in post-match presentations.
Hence the passion and desire to do well brings out the animated reactions from him.
It shows what CSK and the IPL mean to him!!
