Legendary former Indian Cricketer MS Dhoni has been the backbone of Chennai Super Kings in the IPL over the years. Dhoni, who has led CSK to four IPL titles, has been struggling with his fitness and is likely to announce his retirement anytime soon. However, passionate CSK fans want him to continue and lead CSK for another season, which seems highly unlikely, considering his poor form and recently developed injury woes.
Meanwhile, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan has expected Dhoni to feature in the IPL 2024 for one last time. His words come as a sigh of relief for the CSK fans, who want to see Thala Dhoni rattling opposition with his astute captaincy and explosive hitting.
Here's what Viswanathan stated
"We believe MS Dhoni is going to play next season as well so I hope fans will continue to support us like every time".
Since debuting in IPL 2008, Dhoni has been an absolute legend for the Super Kings, amassing 5076 runs at an impressive average of 39.35 and a strike rate of 136.01. After blowing hot and cold in two successive seasons, he finally got some impactful runs under his belt in the IPL this season.
Talking about Chennai Super Kings, they are placed second in the IPL 2023 points table with seven wins and will take on Delhi Capitals in their final group-stage fixture on May 20.
