MS Dhoni is one of the most successful and popular players in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He has led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to four IPL titles and five as a player. He also played for Rising Pune Super Giants in 2016 and 2017 when CSK was suspended.
However, Dhoni’s future in the IPL has been a subject of speculation for a long time. The 41-year-old retired from international cricket in August 2020 and has not played any competitive cricket since then, except for the IPL. Many fans and experts have wondered whether Dhoni will hang up his boots after the IPL 2023 season, which is expected to be his last chance to thank his fans across the country.
But there is a possibility that Dhoni might surprise everyone and play in the IPL 2024 as well. According to CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan, Dhoni is likely to play for at least one more season after 2023. He said that Dhoni has been looking fit and batting well in the lead-up to the IPL 2023 season. He also said that he hopes that the fans will continue to support CSK and Dhoni like every time.
Dhoni’s former teammate and CSK stalwart Suresh Raina also echoed the same sentiment and said that he wouldn’t be surprised if Dhoni plays in the IPL 2024. He said that Dhoni’s performance in the IPL 2023 season will depend on how he adapts to the game after a long gap. He also said that he hopes that Dhoni will lead CSK to their fifth title in IPL 2023.
So, the answer to the question of whether Dhoni will play in the IPL 2024 is not clear yet. It will depend on several factors, such as his form, fitness, motivation, and team management. But one thing is certain: Dhoni is a legend of the game and he will always have a special place in the hearts of millions of fans around the world.
