New Delhi. The 53rd match of IPL 2021 is being played between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings at the Dubai International Stadium. In the match (CSK vs PBKS), Punjab captain KL Rahul won the toss and invited Chennai Super Kings, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, to bat first. Dhoni said in the conversation that I want to play for CSK in the next season, but after the arrival of 2 new teams, no one knows anything. It is known that from IPL 2022, 10 teams will land instead of 8. 2 new teams are to be auctioned this month.
MS Dhoni while talking to Star Sports said, ‘It is difficult to maintain fitness. The postponement of IPL means that you will always have to play more in less time. Personally, I am not worried about it.’ He said that you want to see me play in the yellow jersey next season, but whether I will play for CSK, none of you know. There’s a lot of uncertainty. 2 new teams have been added. We don’t know about the retention rule. There are other things like this.
Want to play last match in Chennai
