However, Singh was quick to react to Raina’s confidence as he said, “ek bola hai toh do khelenge”. The answer to future of MS Dhoni with CSK only lies with the 42-year-old wicketkeeper-batter as he now plays as a pure wicketkeeper and fulfils his duties as a finisher. 

Talking of the 2024 edition, Dhoni has scored only 59 runs from the four innings at a strike rate of 236 so far. His highest score of 37* came against DC in Vizag, but he played a memorable four-ball 20 against the Mumbai Indians to help his side register a convincing win.
