Will Mahendra Singh Dhoni retire from IPL?
CSK CEO gave big information about this
New Delhi. Will Mahendra Singh Dhoni retire from IPL or not? At this time, this thing is being discussed the most. A day earlier, after the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, he took a walk around the team’s home ground Chepauk with fellow players. Autographed T-shirts, balls and many other things were distributed to the fans. This was the last home match of Chennai Super Kings this season. The way Dhoni walked around the field after the match, it seemed that this is Mahi’s last IPL and he can announce his retirement. But, Dhoni often surprises with his decisions. So at the moment, it is too early to say anything.
Now Kashi Vishwanathan, CEO of Chennai Super Kings has also said something which has further complicated the question of Dhoni’s retirement. Times Now quoted CSK CEO Kashi as saying, “We believe that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will play IPL next year as well. So we are hoping that the fans will continue to support us like always. That means Dhoni will be seen playing IPL in 2024 as well.
Dhoni suffering from knee injury
The biggest obstacle in the way of another IPL season of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is his fitness. Dhoni has a knee injury. For this reason, he is coming down in the batting order as well. Even after the match against KKR, when the entire Chennai team led by Dhoni was thanking the fans, Dhoni had an ice pack on his knee.
Who will be the captain of CSK after Dhoni?
One reason for Dhoni not retiring could be that till now it is not clear who will be the captain of Chennai Super Kings after him? In this season too, the team under his leadership is one step away from the playoffs. That means his captaincy is a hit. When Ben Stokes was bought by Chennai in the auction, it was believed that he would be the next captain of the team. But, Stokes also gets injured again and again and he is the captain of England’s Test team.
Heard a lot of taunts about money, but Dhoni became the biggest match winner, after the comeback, there was a furore
‘Elder brother engineer… how long will you wander’, had to listen to taunts from mother, son is the pride of Team India today
Ravindra Jadeja was made the captain again, it seems difficult. Because what happened in 2022 under his captaincy. This is in front of everyone. Ajinkya Rahane and Rituraj Gaikwad are also options. But, Rahane has turned 35 and Rituraj is still young. For this reason, perhaps Dhoni has not said anything to the team management regarding his retirement. He may remain with the team till the search for a new captain is complete.
