CSK CEO gives update on future of MS Dhoni
Reports have emerged claiming that the new rules for the Indian Premier League 2022 and Indian Premier League 2022 auction will be a mega auction, which means no franchise can retain more than four players.
With this, tensions now arise for Chennai Super Kings fans, who are worried whether the Chennai-based franchise would retain its longest-serving player and captain, Mahindra Singh Dhoni.
When IPL mega auction was scheduled to happen in 2020 for Indian Premier League 2021, reports emerged that the Ranchi born former India captain would be released, and MS Dhoni too was interested in going to the auction; however, due to COVID-19, the plans for Indian Premier League mega auction were postponed till the end of 2021.
And now that the Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council and the BCCI have planned that the mega auction may happen this season, the Chennai Super Kings fans are again wondering whether MS Dhoni would stay with the franchise or not.
MS Dhoni fit to play for one or two seasons more
To clear all the rumors and doubts regarding MS Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan revealed to IANS that MS Dhoni is fit enough to continue playing cricket for the next 1 or 2 years for the franchise.
