Chennai Super Kings, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, celebrated the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 title win in their city on Saturday. Apart from Dhoni, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, CSK owner N Srinivasan, BCCI secretary Jay Shah and veteran cricketer Kapil Dev also attended the event held in Chennai. During the event, Dhoni said that his last T20 match could only be in Chennai, but did not mention any time frame regarding a possible retirement from the lucrative tournament.
The former Indian captain said that he has always planned his cricket. He recalled that he played his last ODI in his hometown Ranchi. He said, “Hopefully my last T20 match will be in Chennai itself. Whether it will be next year or in the next five years, we don’t know about it. Wherever we have played, even when we were in South Africa, we had a good number of CSK fans. You yearn for that. Thanks to all of them, it feels like we are playing in Chennai. Hope we come back to Chennai for the fans.
IPL 2022 will be organized in India only
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah has confirmed in this program that IPL 2022 will not be held in UAE but in India. He said that with the addition of two new teams, the excitement of IPL will increase further. We have a mega auction ahead of us and it will be interesting to see new equations. He said, “I know you want to see Chennai Super Kings play at the Chepauk Stadium and that is going to happen very soon.”
