It has always been a question: Will MS Dhoni Play After IPL 2021? here we will discuss everything about MS Dhoni’s retirement news.
After MS Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket after the 2019 ODI world cup final against new Zealand, there has been uncertainty over his cricketing career, also in IPL. Although he still played in ipl2021 for CSK and led very well as always.
He is one of the most successful captains in IPL history. We can say that he was the face of IPL and most of the fans can relate to IPL with MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni is the only player in IPL history, who was bided by every IPL franchise in the 2008 auction and was sold to Chennai super kings for a whopping amount of 1.5 billion dollars.
Chennai super kings have won 3 IPL titles (2011,2012,2018),2 champion trophies (2010,2014), and the most consistent team of the tournament under MS Dhoni. Except for one season back in 2020, CSK qualified for every qualifier since 2008.
Well in the last two years he is not an active player at any domestic and international level and only playing in IPL for now, so it is very tough for a player, who is not active for a long time, to score and maintain that kind of form against new talents and regular professional players. Still, he has been excellent, but not good as he use to be a devastating finisher.
REASONS THAT HE CAN LEAVE IPL ALSO, AFTER 2021
One of the reasons is his growing age and difficulty to maintain a fitness level at that kind of professional level.
The second reason should be the “Mega auction” for 2022. An IPL team can retain only three players, so CSK will retain 3 players who can play till the next mega auction which will be organized in 2025, which means after 3 years. And I guess he will not be keen to play till 2025.
So CSK and Dhoni will think smartly, because he is not just a player for CSK, so definitely he will have some good plans for his team and franchise
The third reason should be, that he is not playing any kind of competitive cricket besides IPL. And it is very challenging for a player to score and maintain good form, who is not a part of competitive cricket for a while. And no player in IPL is that much inactive in professional cricket. However other countries’ retired players are also part of IPL but they play competitive cricket throughout the year like BBL, PSL, and other leagues.
however, Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan has confirmed IPL 2021 is not going to be MS Dhoni’s last year in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with the Yellow Army.
“See, I don’t think it is going to be his final year. This is my personal view and I don’t think we are looking at anybody now,” CSK CEO Viswanathan was quoted.Chennai, India
But who knows dhoni better than himself, he is unpredictable always. Every Indian and every CSK fan would like to watch him in yellow again. If that happens again, we might see vintage dhoni hitting helicopter shots over the ground.
