MS Dhoni and his men had a disappointing IPL season in the UAE, as they finished 6th in the points table, and missed out on a spot in the playoffs for the very first time. However, preparations have already begun in the CSK camp, as they look to eye redemption here. MS Dhoni did announce his retirement from international cricket in August 2020, and it’s just the IPL that entire nation now awaits to get a site of the former World Cup winning captain in action.
MS Dhoni has made 204 IPL appearances so far. The CSK captain has scored 4632 runs, while having registered 23 fifties. He also has a strike rate of 136.8 in the process.
The IPL 2021 starts on April 9, with the first game of the tournament being contested between Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
No team will have a home game, and the playoffs will take place on May 30, in Ahmedabad. The other five venues apart from Ahmedabad are Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore.
