The 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) is likely to begin from March 27, comprising ten teams. Meanwhile, the mega auction will also be held next month.

Ahead of the auction, CSK has made four retentions: Ravindra Jadeja (₹16 crores), MS Dhoni (₹12 crores), Moeen Ali (₹8 crores), and Ruturaj Gaikwad (₹6 crores). Dhoni will continue to lead the side, while it could be his last season in the IPL. However, he has always intended on playing his final match at CSK's home ground, i.e. the MA Chidambaram (Chepauk) Stadium.

As of now, it is unclear if the IPL 2022 will be held across the country. Owing to the ongoing third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) plans to restrict the tournament to one state, which is likely to be Maharashtra. Mumbai and Pune are the preferred cities due to their short travelling distance. If that happens to be the case, Dhoni might have to wait for another season to play his farewell game in Chennai.
