"My last T20 will be in Chennai" - MS Dhoni hints at his future in IPL with CSK

MS Dhoni hints at his future in IPL

Former Indian cricket team captain and legend and Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings' captain MS Dhoni has spoken about his future in the IPL.

It was during the star studded felicitation at Kalaivanar Arangam to celebrate Chennai Super Kings' IPL 2021 win. In attendance were BCCI secretary Jay Shah, Tamil Nadu's  CM MK Stalin and legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev.

During the event, while addressing the people in attendance, MS Dhoni talked about his future in T20 cricket. He stated that his last T20 match wil be in Chennai.

He said that he has pre-planned his cricket career, he retired from Test and ODI cricket while playing at his home town in Ranchi, thus, when he will retire from T20 cricket, he play his last T20 match in Chennai, which has been a 2nd home to him, playing for Chennai Super Kings from the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008. He also added to that, whether it is next year or 5 years later, his last T20 match will be in Chennai.

As we all know, MS Dhoni has retired from all forms of cricket, except he continued playing in IPL. However, come the IPL 2022, all the teams are mandatory to release all the players, except a maximum of 4 players.

Thus, MS Dhoni's statement today could be taken as a hint that the Chennai based franchise and MS Dhoni have already decided that they will continue next year and MS Dhoni will be retained.

CSK's fairytale comeback under MS Dhoni

MS Dhoni led the CSK team to a fairytale comeback to win the IPL 2021. Chennai Super Kings didn't had a good season in 2020 as they finished 7th in the points table and questions were raised on the team and on MS Dhoni.

But, it was under MS Dhoni that CSK made a stunning comeback this season and went on to win IPL 2021, defeating the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Final, who themselves made a huge comeback this season itself after a disappointing first half.
