The cricket lovers are disturbed after hearing the retirement news of India's all time great in MS Dhoni and one of the best white ball players in Suresh Raina. The fans are anticipating to see their idols in the 13th edition of Indian premier league but what next for the former Indian captain in MS Dhoni is one question that keeps coming back to his fans.
It was all expected that MS Dhoni might just make a comeback against all odds after the 2019 world cup semi-final exit but the man has announced his retirement news on the 73rd Independence day for India, August 15th.
A source in the know said, “That was the original plan. He would prepare for the T20 World Cup by way of participating in the IPL and then go forward from there. All of that got disrupted by Covid.”
While it is known that MS Dhoni will continue to play for his franchise Chennai Super Kings in this year’s IPL, the future of Dhoni for CSK
The 2 time world cup winning captain ended his cricketing career for India without a trophy in his last 7 years. India made the knockout stage of almost all the ICC tournaments but couldn’t go past the finishing line and that’s the main reason why the man was delaying the inevitable but it was not meant to be.
“The commercial arrangements were due to arrive at a certain inflexion point post the T20 World Cup and that would’ve eventually seen his exit anyway.He just fell short of another proverbial crease because T20 was supposed to be his final swansong,” the source added
While the great man ended his great career for India, he is expected to play for his franchise for at least another 2 years which the owner of CSK N Srinivasan also confirmed earlier this year. Only time can tell what the legend MS Dhoni has in his mind.
