MS Dhoni hints at his return for the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He told fans that he will return so that they can see him play a ‘farewell game’ in Chennai next year. MS Dhoni has announced his retirement from international cricket last year. However, with an unclear future for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise, fans could see MS Dhoni play another season.
Chennai Super Kings have done well this season. CSK became the first team to qualify for the 2021 IPL playoffs. However, doubts remain concerning their captain MS Dhoni. Recently, in an event celebrating India Cements 75th anniversary, MS Dhoni addressed his intentions for the future.
Dhoni said, “When it comes to farewell, you can still come and see me play for CSK and that can be my farewell game. So, you will still get that opportunity to bid me farewell. Hopefully, we will come to see Chennai and play my last game over there and we can meet fans there”.
Furthermore, an India Cements official also confirmed that CSK will be retaining the captain. With optimism, the official said, “We are going to retain MS Dhoni. He will be there next year and maybe few more years. Nothing has been decided yet. All he said was fans can see his farewell match in Chennai. There is no way to conclude that next year is his last one.”
Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings currently sit on the second spot with 18 points in IPL 2021.
