MS Dhoni, the former Indian captain and present captain of the Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni, revealed a shocking news to his supporters on Saturday afternoon (September 24) when he posted a Facebook update informing them that he would be making a major statement on the social media platform at 2 PM IST.
If this is related to Dhoni’s departure from the Indian Premier League, people in the comment section are concerned. A viewer said in the section for fans: “Our hero, you. Mahi, we adore you very much. While we look forward to it, it shouldn’t be about your retirement.” Other people wrote: “I’m ecstatic, sir. I am very excited to see you. And this time, please refrain from coming and breaking any terrible news.”
Is MS Dhoni bidding goodbye to CSK and Cricket today?
MS Dhoni is 41 years old, and while his supporters will always love him, his body won’t allow him to play cricket indefinitely. One day, it will be announced that he won’t be leading CSK in the IPL anymore. Will this be that day? It might be. But keep in mind what Dhoni said at the commencement of CSK’s final IPL 2022 game. that he would return to the IPL in 2023, ideally in front of home supporters. He wants to play in front of the crowd for one final time as a way of saying goodbye to the supporters, particularly in Chennai.
Not to be overlooked, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly informed state associations in a letter informing them about return of old ‘home and away’ format of IPL from next season. That means Dhoni will get to play in front of home crowd.
Therefore, his retirement may or may not be discussed during the Facebook live. One thing is certain: even if it’s about retiring, he could choose to do so during IPL 2023 rather than before it, as MS Dhoni won’t go back on his commitment to play in the yellow jersey the following year during IPL 2022.
