Will we see the last of Dhoni at Wankhede?

In 2022, one thought it would be Dhoni’s last IPL edition. He came back stronger in 2023 to help CSK life the IPL trophy for the fifth time, equaling MI’s record. Once again he was asked the same question on retirement, and despite wearing knee braces and a colling pack, a confident ex-Indian skipper said definitely once again. And here he is in IPL 2024, having relinquished the captaincy to Ruturaj Gaikwad, once again leaving fans wondering if this is the last time they will see the legend!

Now, as CSK take on MI in the first El Clasico of IPL 2024 on Sunday, the fans at Wankhede might see the last of MS Dhoni at the iconic venue. After all, who can ever forget the goosebumps moment when Dhoni struck a six off the last ball to ‘finish the game off in style’ in the finals against Sri Lanka in 2011 of help India lift their last World Cup.

So far in IPL 2024, MS Dhoni has graced the fans with his presence by walking out to bat in 3 innings out of the five games CSK has played so far. In the very first game, MSD turned the clock back to play an entertaining 37-run knock against Delhi Capital. In the next two innings, he only managed to make 1 run in the game.
