Whether Mahendra Singh Dhoni will continue with Chennai Super Kings after IPL 2021. There is a lot of discussion about this. Dhoni had retired from international cricket after the 2019 World Cup. But since then he has been playing in IPL. It is being said in the news released in the media that the 40-year-old Dhoni will not play in the IPL from next year. However, when Dhoni was asked about this during the toss against Punjab Kings in IPL 2021, he also confused the fans with his answer. Dhoni has confirmed that he will continue with Chennai Super Kings. However, he did not specify whether he would continue to play for Chennai as a player. Significantly, Dhoni has been made the mentor of Team India for the T20 World Cup. And maybe he will be seen in the role of mentor of Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2022.
Dhoni said during the toss, ‘You will see me in the yellow jersey even further, but whether I will play for Chennai Super Kings, I do not even know. There will be a lot of uncertainties. We will wait for it to happen as two new teams will be added to it. It will also have a rotation policy and you don’t know it. We don’t know how many foreign, Indian players we can retain. So there are a lot of uncertainties. You can’t really decide until the rules are clear. So we will wait for it to happen and hopefully it will be good for everyone.
Dhoni had recently said about his retirement from IPL that he would like to play his last match in Chennai in front of the fans there, in such a situation there were speculations that Dhoni might play IPL next year also. Dhoni has won the IPL title three times for Chennai under his captaincy.
