MS Dhoni has led CSK to the IPL 2021 playoffs for the 11th time of 12 instances. Meanwhile, he would be leading the side again in IPL 2022, which would be his final season, besides playing his last game in Chennai.
Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni continues to lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, while he has led the side to the playoffs for the 11th time of the 12 occasions so far. His side faced a dreadful outing in IPL 2020, finishing seventh.
While Dhoni would be looking to steer CSK to the final and hand it its fourth title, he has supposedly started playing next season. Dhoni hinted at playing his last IPL game in Chennai in front of the local crowd at the MA Chidambaram (Chepauk) Stadium during a recent event.
During a virtual fan event organised by CSK owner India Cements, Dhoni asked his fans to come and see him playing him in Chennai for his farewell game. He also wished to meet some fans at the venue during his last match before hanging his boots from cricket.
The IPL 2022 would witness the mega auction. Meanwhile, as per PTI, sources have indicated that Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Ruturaj Gaikwad are the three retentions that are likely to happen for CSK.
One of the fans asked if Dhoni would be trying his luck in Bollywood post retirement, to which Dhoni replied that acting was not an easy task and would stick to cricket. Although he did not reveal details regarding his post-retirement cricket role, he is likely to take up the role of a mentor with the side.
