Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not played a competitive match for a year. Not even in the national team after India's match against New Zealand in the World Cup semifinals. The former Indian captain's return to cricket was delayed due to Corona. Or maybe he could have been seen in the jersey of Chennai Super Kings in IPL in March. If he played well for Chennai, he might have given a message to return to the Indian team.
If all goes well, Dhoni may be seen on the field next September. The March IPL will be held in September in the United Arab Emirates. But will Dhoni be able to match himself perfectly? Age is a big issue. The main enemy of India's most successful captain is now at this age.
In the IPL, Dhoni's franchise Chennai Super Kings, however, has no problem with Dhoni's age. Kashi Bishwanath, the chief executive of the franchise, said that even if Dhoni wants, he can play for Chennai after 40 years.
They want Dhoni to continue the game even after 40, 'We have no problem with Dhoni's age. He will be 40 in 2022, we want him to continue playing at that time too '- Bishwanath's comment. Chennai Super Kings owe a lot to Dhoni in IPL. The two-time World Cup-winning captain has won three titles for the team. Dhoni will celebrate his 40th birthday in July next year (2021).
At the moment, Dhoni is preparing for the IPL in the indoor net of his home in Jharkhand. Dhoni has not yet had any contact with Chennai. Bishwanath himself said that he came to know about net practice at home in Jharkhand by reading newspapers. However, the team has no problem with this, 'We have no additional worries about our captain. He is experienced enough. He knows what his responsibilities are! '
