Mahendra Singh Dhoni is undoubtedly the biggest name when it comes to cricket in India. Having led the national side to all the possible ICC trophies, he has also marked his presence in the Indian Premier League over the years. The 40-year-old, famously known as Thala, has captained Chennai Super Kings since the inception of the tournament and has gone on to become a legend for the franchise.
He has already announced his retirement from international cricket and is in the twilight of his IPL career. Although the Yellow Army have secured their place in the playoffs under his leadership, it has not been a very memorable campaign for Mahi on an individual level. This has resulted in constant speculations and rumours doing the rounds on social media around his future in IPL.
However, in conversation with some CSK fans, Dhoni has finally broken his silence. Usually a man of very few words, the 40-year-old surprisingly did not shy away from giving an honest and candid answer when he was asked about his farewell game.
You can come and see me play for CSK: Dhoni
Reflecting on the same, MS Dhoni said, "When it comes to farewell, you can come and see me play for CSK, you will get the opportunity to bid me farewell. Hopefully we will come there in Chennai and play my last game and meet all the fans".
The 'Whistle Podu' army would undoubtedly be delighted with MS Dhoni's statement where the CSK skipper has hinted that he will play a farewell game in Chennai where he will meet all the fans. It would be interesting to see how and when this actually happens but one thing is guaranteed that whenever that farewell match takes place, the M Chidambaram stadium would certainly be flooded with fans.
Will MS Dhoni play IPL 2022?
There is currently no information if the CSK skipper will be seen in IPL 2022 or not. Having managed to score 84 runs in 13 games with the bat so far, there is a possibility that MSD could announce his retirement after the end of this season. However, fans would love to see him for at least one more season of IPL, which will take place in India next year.
