Bengaluru: MS Dhoni has retired from international cricket. It won’t be long before he bids adieu to the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Currently, Dhoni is preparing for the 13th edition of the cash-rich Twenty20 league to be played in the UAE and according to his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammate Dwayne Bravo, the former India captain has already started thinking about handing over the IPL captaincy to Suresh Raina or someone younger.
“I know it’s been (next CSK captain) in the back of his mind for some time, I mean all of us have to step aside at some point of time. It’s just the matter of when to step aside and hand it over to whether it’s a Raina or someone younger,” Bravo told ABP News.

“He doesn’t have to worry about a billion people now, it’s just CSK the franchise but I don’t think that’ll change the person he is, won’t he change how he leads the team, definitely he’ll be the same person,” the West Indian all-rounder added.
Under Dhoni’s leadership, CSK have won three IPL titles, the second most in the history of the league. The 39-year-old Dhoni has been with CSK since the inception of IPL in 2008.
In IPL 2020, CSK will open their campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) on September 19 in Abu Dhabi.
