CSK will play its last league game of IPL 2022 on Friday. They will not participate in the play-offs. This will be the last game of the season for CSK. This season, as in the previous two, there were rumors that this would be MS Dhoni’s last season.
Before the toss, Ian Bishop, arguably one of the best commentators in the game, asked Dhoni whether he would play next season or not. Dhoni will be 41 when the next IPL starts, so it will be interesting to see if the CSK skipper continues to wear the yellow next year.
But for now, he put all rumors to rest when he confirmed that he would indeed be playing in IPL 2023.
Absolutely, I will play next season: MS Dhoni
Dhoni had handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja before the season, but Jadeja returned it mid-season. Dhoni revealed that Jadeja couldn’t handle the pressure and so he gave him the job back.
Dhoni has always been a man of mysteries. He announced his retirement from Test out of the blue.
There were many rumors about Dhoni’s international career after the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup, but he ended that in his own unique way more than a year later when he announced his retirement from international cricket via a video on his Instagram account. announced.
However, Dhoni continued to play in the IPL. When asked if he would participate next season after CSK’s poor performance in IPL 2020, MS Dhoni replied that he would without a doubt, and he did. There were many suspicions for IPL 2022 that MS Dhoni would also withdraw from the competition. After all, a large auction was planned, but the management of CSK decided to keep it. Now MS Dhoni hopes that IPL will move to Chennai so that he can play his last game there.

Best news of the day – MS Dhoni continues to play IPL. Most likely will also lead Chennai in 2023, if we don’t find another captain.

MS Dhoni: Hopefully, yes.
MS Dhoni: Absolutely, not.
Dhoni: Still, I haven’t been left behind.
Dhoni: Absolutely, it will be unfair not to thank the Chepauk audience.
