Chennai: Currently, former Indian captain MS Dhoni is playing only in the Indian Premier League. Dhoni retired from international cricket in August 2020 and continued to play for CSK in the IPL. But it is not clear now whether Dhoni will play in the IPL season 2024. CSK fans are worried about Dhoni’s availability for the upcoming season as he underwent a recent knee surgery. Meanwhile, Pakistan pace legend Wasim Akram has made a shocking statement about Dhoni.
Wasim Akram says that MS Dhoni can continue to play for the Indian team if he wants to. But Akram also says that Dhoni’s retirement is at the right time. “Looking at the performance, Dhoni can continue to play for the Indian team if he wants. But Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket just in time. That is Dhoni’s specialty. Dhoni is expected to make a strong comeback in the IPL next season. Dhoni is fully healthy. In IPL 2023, he was not out of a single match. At a certain age going back is troublesome. It takes practice and desire. But he is well aware of what Dhoni is doing,’ said Wasim Akram.
Dhoni and CSK are one piece
Dhoni is a cricket legend. He is a legendary captain. Winning five titles with one team is no small feat. That too in a big tournament like IPL. The 10-team league has 14 games to play for the playoffs. Chennai Super Kings had a slow start to the 2023 season but Dhoni’s team managed to reach the finals and lift the trophy. Five titles is a dream come true. Chennai is a legendary team. Even after his retirement, Dhoni will remain with CSK as an advisor, president or in other positions. CSK and Dhoni are not two, but one,’ said Akram.
