MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings team in the Indian Premier League (IPL), gave a hint that the ongoing season of IPL 2023 could be his last. After his team defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets, Dhoni said that it is important for him to enjoy the last phase of his career. CSK is currently third in the IPL 2023 points table with eight points.
Dhoni was praised for his performance behind the stumps during the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad as he took a good catch and stumped Mayank Agarwal. He also spoke highly of young Sri Lankan pace bowler Matheesha Pathirana, who bowled four superb overs and grabbed two wickets, even though he was a little expensive, conceding 42 runs.
At the post-match presentation, Dhoni expressed his happiness at being able to play in front of a crowd after two years. He thanked the fans for their support and love. Dhoni also mentioned that he was hesitant to bat second because he had a feeling there won’t be a lot of dew. But once spinners came in, they bowled a very good length and fast bowlers, especially Pathirana, bowled superbly.
Overall, Dhoni’s hint of retiring after IPL 2023 has caused a stir in the cricket world, and fans will be eagerly waiting to see how he performs in the remaining matches of the tournament.
